Event description

Description

Inspired by a true story of a family in a very humble community in the state of Puebla, México, an 8 year old girl walked the streets of México city knocking doors in the look for a job and a better future. Not having the opportunity to go to school and learn how to write or read, with the soul of a warrior, she never let anything or anybody take away her dreams of leaving that life of extreme poverty. Many years later she is a Canadian Resident and manages her own building maintenance company. I always wonder who she could have become or how much more she could have acomplished if she would have had the opportunity of having a quality education.

For those of us who were lucky enough to obtain an education we understand the impact that can have on the opportunities we have to acheive our goals and the overall quality of our life. But in Mexico, as are many other countries, the amount of children NOT enrolled in school is as much as 3 TIMES LESS than average & The student-teacher ratio 60% LESS than average. It is the major leading cause of the cycle of poverty leading to corruption and crime all over the world.

Vamos A La Escuela International Scholarship Foundation delivers scholarships, education and funding the refurbishment of abandoned or unsafe local school facilities of less fortunate children in the poverty striken rural México who struggle with educational opportunities. Our Mission is to give these children every resource to realize that they really can reach their dreams, greatest career goals to help break the cycle of poverty and help change the world one graduate at a time.

Founded and sponsored by Cinco De Mayo Mexican Grill in North Vancouver, BC and we need your help to lend a hand to the less fortunate children in need.

Hosted in one of North Vancouver's most historic Shipyard Buildings, join us to support the inaugural event of the foundation with an evening of live entertainment, dinner, drinks, dancing, special guests, presentations and more!

All funds raised and proceeds from the event support Vamos A La Escuela International Scholarship Foundation.
