June and July Newsletter!

Greetings from Los Patojos!



We are pleased to inform you with love and affection that many of our activities have come to fruition during the past few months.
We would also like to tell you that our construction is almost finished; very soon you will be able to see photos of our completed offices and construction here at los patojos.



Los Patojos has been a place of love and of much happiness for more than 85 boys and girls who currently attend our program.
Our program continues to improve more and more, creating opportunities for freedom and material independence for families while fostering love and confidence through personal motivation.



The projects that have been successfully running during the past few months include the Youth Project, the English School, The Parents School and our Little School. We have also initiated a new Women’s Project, where we intend to promote and defend the rights of women and their dignity.



We are very happy for the opportunity to realize these projects planned by the Patojos Team and administrated by our distinctive members. Thanks to everyone who have made these projects possible.

Right now, we have an excellent team of volunteers (from Spain, Germany, Canada and the United States) that have worked with us to improve the quality of life for our kids. Thank you friends, you are essential to our team.


Our lovely Marguerite Keating is in the house! representing the School of San Carlos of Borromeo, who has provided our program with educational material and much support.
Thanks for believing in us!


RisingMinds visited during the month of June, giving more hope and joy to our local


team. Thanks Steph and Erica for your visit…thanks for keeping Los Patojos alive and ready for the fight!


We love Keating and Risingminds!
