LAPA-NCR maintains a robust International Relief effort. Supporting this effort is one very real way that the members of LAPA-NCR can maintain contact with their country of adoption.
Much of our current effort focuses on "Cooperative for Education".
Mis Amigos is sponsoring a Guatemalan student, Oliver, through the organization Cooperative for Education (Co-Ed): https://www.coeduc.org/give/ Co-Ed provides literacy programs, textbooks, computers, and youth development with the over-arching goal of breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala through education.
