Build a University in Mexico

We are building a university in Isla Mujeres, México to support local youth and the Isla community. Education is the key to exiting poverty, and through a three year accredited training program all our students will leave with the skills necessary to enter the job market, pursue well paying careers, and support themselves and their families. 

So far we have completed two buildings at a cost of $200,000. Once we build the third we will be able to open the university. We have received a generous match of $50,000 to do this, we just need the last $50,000.

Please, help us achieve this goal!
