Help build a school for Ayautla

I have lived in the Sierra Mazateca of Oaxaca Mexico for 6 years. There I have my wife, my children and own a Pizza shop. The Sierra Mazateca is a cloud forest jungle paradise rich in all types of fruit, coffee culture, and many types of agricultural activity. However, money, is not there. Average household incomes may be as high as $45 per week. While I am fairly well integrated into society, I am amazed by a new grass roots movement by the Parental School Committee of the Section 22 in San Bartolome Ayautla to raise money for a new elementary school. To me it seems incredible the amount of money they are trying to raise but I have seen these things work in the past. In 2014 a friend from Colorado Donated $2000 for a school in Agua De La Rosa, Huautla. I happened to be driving by in 2018 when they were inaugurating the school. Currently the Parental School Committee is raising $14,285us just to buy the land for their school. So far they have 10% of their goal. I wish these parents could spend more time just being parents, that is why I want to raise money to help them in this noble cause. While I don't have much money to donate I am glad to use gofundme to extend an opportunity to my fellow American to help as a means of saying we don't all want a wall. Not all Americans are the type of people that take children from their parents and lock them in cages. Also we believe in the children as our future and in giving them a good education we all benefit.

This campaign will end December 2nd. December 3rd 2018 I will meet with the School director, the President and the Treasurer of the Parental School Committee to give them all the money raised. I will see that the donation is properly recorded. Also I will let them know it is not my money but that it came from American citizens that believe in children and don't hate Mexicans.
