Project

La Paz Community School is a non-profit organization founded in 2007 to address fundamental socioeconomic and cultural gaps prevalent in the region. The scholarship program at La Paz Community School enables students who would never have been afforded the chance to receive such a quality education, to do so. Thank you for your time and effort in giving back to the community you are visiting.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 27, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
