In February we have had many exciting events, and IMIFAP and the members of the communities have been preparing for the opening of the second year of the center in Orizabita, the renovation of the center in Los Remedios and the event for it’s first anniversary!

We were working very hard for the opening of the second year of the center in Orizabita, which happened on march 4th, and we will continue to follow up during this month. All the members of the community have been working a lot for this, and in IMIFAP we continue to support them to make it happen.

The center in Los Remedios, Hidalgo, is being renewed. During this month, the community was very busy painting the building on the inside with many colors, and IMIFAP has been providing new equipment (games and books) for the children.

The centers’ success has been incredible, and in order to celebrate it, there will be a big event for its’ first anniversary and the beginning of its’ second year running. With this, we celebrate the effort of everyone at IMIFAP and in the community who have been very involved and have worked very hard to give these children a better life and better opportunities. We’re on the right track, and with your support, we have managed to give these communities, and their children, an incredible opportunity for their development.


En el mes de febrero hemos tenido muchos emocionantes eventos, y tanto IMIFAP como los miembros de las comunidades, nos hemos estado preparando para la reinauguración de actividades del centro en Orizabita, la renovación del centro en Los Remedios y ¡el evento de su primer aniversario!

Estuvimos trabajando mucho para la reinauguración del centro en Orizabita, la cual se llevó a cabo el 4 de marzo, y seguiremos dandole seguimiento todo este mes. Todos los miembros de la comunidad llevan trabajando mucho para lograrlo, y en IMIFAP seguimos apoyándolos para hacerlo posible.

El centro en Los Remedios, Hidalgo, está en proceso de renovación. A lo largo de todo el mes, la comunidad estuvo muy ocupada pintando por dentro las instalaciones de distintos colores, e IMIFAP ha estado equipando el centro con nuevos juegos y libros para los niños.

El éxito de este centro ha sido increíble, y para celebrarlo, habrá un evento por su primer aniversario y el comienzo de su segundo año en funciones. De esta manera, celebramos el esfuerzo de todos en IMIFAP y en la comunidad quienes han estado muy involucrados y han trabajado muy duro para darles a estos niños una vida mejor. Vamos por buen camino, y con tu apoyo, hemos logrado darle a estas comunidades, y a sus niños, una oportunidad increíble para su desarrollo.
