Brigadistas at Lake Chapala Society

Please join us on Saturday july 29th, 2017 at 11 a.m. at the Lake Chapala Society in Ajiji
for the drawing of the winning raffle ticket.  (tixs are 30 pesos each). 
The raffle prize is a new HP laptop computer.

The brigadistas are raising this money to pay for 14 new Brigadista uniforms for the new Brigadista leaders who have just joined the program.  The cost of the uniform (including the boots) is around 1,200 pesos per leader, and the leaders have to raise part of the cost themselves – thus the raffle.

The Brigadista leaders are trained in Guadalajara to fight fires and provide emergency first aid,
as it would be unlikely that a fire truck could ever reach these remote areas in time.

There are over 1,300 children now enrolled in the program. 

Being in the Brigadista program means that they all have to take part in community projects, 
help with clean up of their communities, and stay in school.   
Education will make a difference to their lives.

Thank you for your interest and support!
