Our Annual Appeal

Now entering its fifth year, Amigos de San Pablo is currently accepting donations for the 2011 school year, which starts in mid-January.

Amigos de San Pablo depends on donations from people like you—people who believe that all children have a fundamental right to get an education.

For those of you who have donated in the past, thank you. Know that your contributions have made a huge difference in the lives of children from San Pablo. Our grantees have overcome a variety of challenges to stay in school. It is incredibly gratifying to us that Darvin Pérez—one of our first grantees in 2007—is still in school, despite familial pressure to work in the fields or migrate to Mexico. After a rocky start, he has embraced school and become a youth leader. And in many ways, he has come to represent for us the power of a program like Amigos de San Pablo.

Please help students like Darvin by giving to Amigos de San Pablo this holiday season. Thanks again for your support!
