The Volcanes Primary School is located 5 Kilometers (3 miles) inland outside the town of Puerto Vallarta in a Colonia called Volcanes. The Volcanes School is a publicly funded facility and has recently built new additions to expand their existing rooms that serve over 250 students in the surrounding area.
Café Roma's Kids organization has been involved in supporting education and social programs in the Puerto Vallarta region by providing school supplies, funding teacher's wages, hosting fundraising efforts and developing a feeding program for less fortunate children in the area. The organization decided to focus their efforts towards helping the Volcanes School and envisioned starting a computer centre as part of the students' curriculum. The idea fits well with our Foundation's Isa Mundo Education Centre (IMEC) concept and discussions began to complete this project in January 2011.
