Project Amigo Sends NUHS Interact Youth to Mexico

Students from NU High School Rotary Interact Group will be heading south of the Border later this month on a good will mission to the youth of the Mexican State of Colema. 49er rotary member and coordinator and Chaperone for the trip, Jim Adams says the idea for project Amigo got started by his good friend and fellow Rotarian Ted Rose.

“Well, he and his wife went to Colema and the area where they went was in such disrepair that he said, ‘we’ve got to do a project’ and so he began a youth project there, I want to say, 25 years ago.”

 Interact member and NU senior Alec Sarner says this will be his 3rd time going to Mexico for Project Amigo.

“This year we’re bringing about 28 kids and it’s a trip down there to teach the kids about dental hygiene, give them fluoride treatments and also provide them with clothes and book donations because the kids down there don’t have much and it’s good that we can go down there and help them out.”

He says most of the Interact members have already raised funds to make the trip. They will be leaving February 18th and stay for one week.
