Each year, the Royal Resorts Foundation sponsors a class of 35 primary school pupils at Colegio Mano Amiga on the outskirts of Cancun. They are looking forward to classes in a school that offers them a stable study environment and hope for a brighter future.
Despite universal access to public primary and secondary education in Mexico, many children still lack schooling or drop out of school to help support their families. The causes are many and include extreme poverty, migration, language barriers, a disturbed family background and other social problems. In 2009, the Ciudad de la Alegria community center opened the Mano Amiga nursery and school to give children from low-income households in marginalized areas of Cancun an education and the opportunity for a better life. Thanks to donations from local benefactors like Royal Resorts, the Mano Amiga School now has more than 1,050 students on its roll.
With your support we can reach out to even more children. Your donations give them a chance to study, fulfill their potential and pursue their dreams. They are learning in a happy, safe place where they can enjoy their childhood, eat nutritious meals and have access to regular medical check ups.

Through the Impulsalos program, we are also providing three scholarships for students at La Salle University.
