Description of Project

Pasitos de Luz is a long-established non-profit organization founded by mothers of disabled children from low-income families. Pasitos de Luz provides vital services to disabled children and their families living in extreme poverty in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and the surrounding communities. All of these services are provided 100% free of charge.
