Welcome to Friends of Pimpollo
Friends of Pimpollo (pronounced pim-poy-o, or FOP for short) is dedicated to developing and supporting education-based projects in southern Mexico, with a particular focus on the states of Oaxaca and Chiapas.
Operating as a volunteer organization, we rely on the generosity of donors like you to make our work possible. Your support is instrumental in ensuring the continuity of our educational programs, enabling us to provide ongoing assistance to students in need.
Monthly program sponsorships play a crucial role in sustaining the educational, nutritional, and daily needs of those participating in our programs. These consistent contributions serve as a reliable source of funding, allowing us to maintain our focus on the future of these initiatives.
Your support is truly transformative, and together, we are building a brighter future for these students.
Education Scholarship Program
Vicente Guerrero Community
Our organization provides support for students who for financial reasons would otherwise not be able to achieve their educational aspirations. We provide financial assistance for tuition, room and board, computers, housing, counseling and leadership support.
Oaxaca Kids Can
Oaxaca Kids Can is a nutritious breakfast and computer education program that serves over 700 children at multiple schools in Southern Mexico.
In 2018, Friends of Pimpollo was proud to begin its 10th year of support of educational initiatives in Vicente Guerrero, a largely indigenous transitional community that encircles the Oaxaca municipal landfill. The program proudly supports 740 students in 14 preschool, primary and secondary schools in the area.
ECOSER is giving young adults in Southern Mexico the opportunity to permanently end the cycle of poverty in their lives through obtaining a college education.
