Project Amigo

Project Amigo supports students from Colima, Mexico so that they can create their own educational opportunities and better their quality of life.

​To do this, we remove the financial barriers to education through scholarships that include school fees, transportation, uniforms and school supplies, and a hot lunch. Our staff also provide tutoring and mentoring during Project Amigo Homework Club. Homework Clubs also provide us with a way of keeping in close touch with the students so we can identify problems before they become so severe that the student is forced to drop out of school.

We also provide opportunities for volunteers from other countries to do valuable humanitarian service that creates and fosters friendship and understanding across cultures.

Education and literacy are powerful tools to create a brighter future for the world’s children who in turn benefit the nations they live in. Since 1984, Project Amigo has worked with rural youth in Mexico to continue their formal schooling including university level.

Project Amigo became a U.S. 501c3 non-profit charity in 1996, providing educational scholarships, material support, enrichment activities, and health care to disadvantaged youth in the state of Colima, Mexico.

Volunteer Work Weeks based at our headquarters in the beautiful hillside village of Cofradía de Suchitlán allow volunteers from other countries to engage in humanitarian service and become both friends and sponsors of Mexican youth seeking the many advantages of education.

Brianne Thomas Aug 14, 2018
The Stollery Women's Network

Brianne will be speaking to our club about the Stollery Women’s Network (SWN). SWN started in 2014 with a small group of women who wanted to advocate for the Stollery Children’s Hospital’s patients and their families. Today they have a network of over 550 and continue to raise awareness and funds for the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Their current fundraising efforts go to our Giving Comfort campaign, which provides comfort items, such as t-shirts, blankets, toiletry kits and colouring books for patients and their families in the Stollery’s emergency room. This is the first type of program of its kind within the Stollery’s ER and last year they were able to raise $267,000.

There are many ways to get involved with SWN, through volunteering at our educational booths, spreading our message on social media, attending our many fundraising events and of course donating to the Giving Comfort campaign.

  • The closure of the municipal airport
  • Getting the deal done for the downtown arena & its impact on transforming our downtown
  • Donate-a-Ride
  • City of Edmonton Youth Council's Heart 2 Art Campaign where they ended up raising $110,000 for Boyle Street

Scott met Kim at a conference and was impressed by what she had to say and her involvement in making Edmonton a better place so immediately snapped her up as a speaker.
