Alexis was born in Puerto Vallarta and is currently 15 years old. Some of you will remember that he lived as a child at Refugio Infantil Santa Esperanza, where he grew up happy and surrounded by many friends. He has always been cooperative, compassionate, and sensitive with other children and adults around him.
Two years ago Alexis was able to return to live with his family. He now has the opportunity to grow up and support his grandfather, mother and younger brother, and understands clearly that a good education is the key to making this happen. Currently Alexis attends a middle school in a neighborhood just outside of Puerto Vallarta and stands out as an excellent student with a perfect 10 (out of a possible 10) grade point average. He recently was presented an award at this school as the top student in his grade. Alexis is very talented in drawing and design. His physical problems (partial paralysis on the left side of his body) have never limited his ambition or his goals.
Sendero de Esperanza y Amor supports Alexis’ educational efforts by contributing $65 US monthly toward his school tuition, books, educational materials, uniform and shoes, and public bus transportation so that he can continue toward a better life for himself and his family.
You can help Alexis or any of the other dedicated and motivated students to reach their educational goals through Sendero’s new SOS – Sponsor One Student by sending a donation right away marked “SOS.” For more information about this program, please refer to our website – www.cshf-us.org and view the Sendero link. Our suggested donations levels for the SOS program are:
- A donation of $300 US/CDN for a full year of support for one student, or
- A donation of $150 US/CDN for a half year of support for one student, or
- A donation of $20 US/CDN each month.
Each donor will receive updates and photos of their sponsored student twice during the school year, and the satisfaction of knowing that they are helping to make a real difference through SOS – Sponsor One Student.
