Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Pasitos de Luz is a daycare for disabled children from low income families. If a family has a reliable day care for their child, they have a better chance of creating and keeping a stable home.
We first heard about Pasitos de Luz when a friend volunteered to help during her winter’s stay in Puerto Vallarta. Our friend raised a child from birth until his passing in his mid-forties; he had cerebral palsy and though he was very physically challenged, they had a wonderful relationship. They shared a fun sense of humor, many private jokes and loads of common friends, which is normal for most people with limiting conditions.
Our friend wanted to contribute to this precious community where she could relate to the children and parents. She met many volunteers at Pasitos de Luz who became a part of her personal extension of friends in Puerto Vallarta; she opened our eyes and hearts to this special place.
Pasitos de Luz, which translates as wee little steps of light, is a non-profit organization, relying on contributions from local patrons and supporters out of the country. They change nothing for their services which include physiotherapy, nutrition and dietary assistance, special education, lessons in hygiene, occupational therapy, recreation, games, parties and hydrotherapy. Their art, dance and music workshops are loved by the children and the adults have a lot of fun, too!
Pasitos de Luz is always looking for people with training in the above specialties but they welcome anyone who wants to have a rewarding experience with some really beautiful kids. It doesn’t matter how much time you have to spare, even an hour will be of great help, and special skills are not required, including Spanish. The kids love everyone! Visitors are always welcomed too, and they are happy to conduct tours of the facilities.
Pasitos de Luz is a fully registered charity in Puerto Vallarta, established in 2000 and is open weekdays during normal school hours. For information on how you can contribute, visit their website, call 322-299-3625 or email info(at)pasitosdeluz.org.
