Our Mission

History History_1.html
The kids enjoy English classes, ongoing art classes,, a great kitchen for baking and cooking, a game room, sports activities, reading and music in our library.  We have classes in Ukulele, Piano, and Flute, all taught by our volunteers.  Computers are available for the kids to use for homework.  Our kids have performed community service work, clean up activities on the beach and streets, baking treats and taking them to the senior center, educating others about the importance of recycling, and participating in pet spay clinics.

La Casa de los Niños is a free, after school enrichment center available to all of the children in Lo de Marcos, Nayarit, Mexico.  It is our intention to provide a safe and stimulating environment in which the children can play, learn and dream.  Volunteer Programs have been developed to provide opportunities for adults, children and students to experience global community service opportunities. !!!

Our Educational Liason

Each year we select 2-3  of the older children at La Casa to work as assistants to our teachers.  This gives them a chance to experience a little more responsibility in La Casa  and to get some experience working closely with the teachers.
