Sahm Family Foundation
Project: Expand the Arts & Music Program at the Palapa School and Learning Center.
Thanks to the Sahm Family Foundation, The Palapa Society of Todos Santos, A.C. was able to launch an innovative Art Program. The Sahm funding has allowed us the potential to incorporate the fine arts into all core curriculum subject areas for all students in a way that enhances the primary subject matter while expanding awareness and personal experiences of each student in various art areas. For those students from lower-income families, our art program is their first opportunity to practice fine arts, as their families cannot usually afford art-related activities. This art and music program is also a way to close the gap between students from different socioeconomic backgrounds within our school and community. This aligns with Palapa’s overall mission to improve the wellbeing and opportunities of all families in Todos Santos.
Los Cabos Children’s Foundation
Project: The Health and Whole Child Learning Project
Provide nutritious and healthy options in the school kitchen. Detection of students or families that require psychological care, referral to therapy and follow-up. Formation of the school soccer team (promotion of physical activity). Workshops on pregnancy prevention, dating violence prevention and addiction prevention. The support we have received from LCCF has been essential to build our holistic education project where we aim to be interested in students not only from the academic aspect, but also in their development as responsible and full human beings.
