School for Special Children


The Lakeside Charity, the “School for Special Children,” supporting the Escuela Para Niños Especiales school in Jocotepec, Jalisco, is proud to welcome our new Board of Directors elected at the Annual General Meeting on March 28th 2019, held at the Real de Chapala in Ajijic.

School for Special Children

This is the most diverse and largest team that we have ever had, and we look forward to contributing to the on-going operations of this very special school with its 92 students, ranging in ages from toddlers to 20 years plus.

We would also like to thank the Ajijic community for their support of our Fundraising efforts, which include the famous “Home Tours,” all of which have been sold out throughout the year, and our highly successful annual Auction Fashion Show, held each year at Las Caballerizas, at the Racquet Club in San Juan Cosala in early December.

We would also like to thank all the people who came to the AGM, which was our largest attendance ever, and specifically thank Sr. Salvador Macìas, the Director of the School, who spoke and shared his passion to every person attending.

If you would like to join our team of volunteers, we would be pleased to have you on board. We have many exciting initiatives planned for this year, including diligently working on much needed repairs to the School.
