As of September 1st, Programa Pro Niños Incapacitados Del Lago and Amistad Canada are entering into a project partnership that strengthens their abilities to benefit sick and disabled children and their families in the Lake Chapala region of Jalisco.

Amistad Canada (Amistad) is a registered Canadian charity that makes tax-deductible donations to projects run by seven non-governmental organizations in San Miguel de Allende, and now to an eighth, Niños Incapacitados at Lakeside.

Amistad-supported projects to support youth include literacy, music and art education, school hot- meal services, dental care in poor communities, midwife training as well as high school and post- secondary scholarships.

Of particular note to Canadian supporters of Ninos Incapacitados is that your donation to Amistad Canada in our name will give you the tax-deductible receipt that is often important to our donors.

Dave Pike, president of Niños Incapacitados, says “the organization is delighted to join forces with Amistad Canada whose extensive experience in assisting other NGOs in Mexico, and stature as a Canadian charity, will be of real benefit to our ability to help children and their families in the Lakeside community.”

“Amistad Canada is excited to be launching a new project in the Lake Chapala region,” says its president Charles Novogrodsky, “Niños Incapacitados has a sterling community reputation. This project advances our work to build civil society relationships between Canada and Mexico.”

All updates for on-line donations through our website will be ready for September 1, 2017
