2019 Quarter 2 Financial Impact

We are proud to announce that we have been awarded an 885,446 pesos grant from the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation (LCCF) for the August 2019-2020 year. This is great news for the Women and Children of the Sarahuaro Foundation. Fifty percent will be received by September, fifty percent in January.

A 3-year Business Plan has been developed to support our efforts in projecting Sarahuaro as a sound organization, to provide guidance to the Board governance, and for submission to meet grant requirements. It is a work in progress and your input is encouraged – all feedback welcome!

Our 2018 Audited Financial Report and 2019 Q1 Financials are now available for your perusal.

Sarahuaro’s Community Garden (Circle of Champions Project) has taken on a life of its own and we are getting volunteers, donations and grants to support and expand it. We received a 100,000 pesos grant from Fundación Dolphin Discovery, a non-profit organization in Mexico, and a small part of the LCCF funds are designated to helping our garden thrive. As a result, we have a garden manager and other expenses that, going forward, will be allocated directly to Garden Operating Expense. The harvest benefits the Children’s Kitchens and a dozen local families who are heavily engaged in its maintenance.

They have an opportunity to support each other regardless of what their backgrounds are. They come together unified and become better for themselves and their families.
