Scholarships that make
Our Scholarship Program provides the required tuition, uniforms, and school supplies for students in good standing that are “at risk” of leaving school due to financial difficulties.
We also mentor and follow-up our kids along their way, not only through a variety of activities that supplement their preparation for life; we also carry out on-going social work services available to them and their families, making sure that they are well-nourished and stay healthy.
Whenever it is discovered one of our grantees and/or their families are going through a crisis, we provide the social support needed. We partner with local professionals, as well as the corresponding government entities, to help our kids to resolve the emotional, social or other issues and provide them with the resources needed to overcome the obstacles that prevent them from succeeding at school.$0.00 donated
Liga MAC believes that education is an essential component to ensuring a quality life. In the year 2004, we created a scholarship program to help the children of deprived families to stay at school. Liga MAC provides uniforms, shoes, tuition fees and school supplies to qualifying students to move forward through high-school, encouraging them to continue for a trade or a higher education.$0.00 donated
Whenever our students require special tests or medications that do not qualify for coverage under the national health care system, we help them. We work in conjunction with area physicians, hospitals, pharmacies and private or public agencies to provide this care at a greatly reduced cost. Our support includes (but is not limited to) medication, lab or image tests, minor operations, physician care, and emergency care. In all cases, the student’s family is incorporated as a responsible co-participant in dealing with the corresponding costs and follow-up on treatments.$0.00 donated
Once a family home, the two-bedroom renovated house and spacious walled grounds serve as our office, classroom space, and activity center.
The Support Center is staffed from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm Monday to Friday, and open to the public from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm weekdays.
The Center also becomes a safe place four our students to drop-off for advise, to do homework, and ask for any help needed. Our Mexican staff is also available to assist their parents and family members to address issues that affect the student’s performance at school.Donate
Some Success Stories
Four bright Liga MAC students get scholarships for universityTania, Juan Manuel, Diego and Jesus graduated from high-school as valedictorians. They are now enrolled in different local universities thanks to Liga MAC & the Green Scholarship Program of Cabo San Lucas.
During the school year 2017-2018, Liga MAC mentored its 12th graders in view of finding their true vocation and deciding where to study and how to get support. Special vocational tests and first-hand information about higher education were offered, along with a thorough follow up of each kid.
Liga MAC partners with other organizations to help our youths move forward. The Green Scholarship Program of Cabo San Lucas gives support to top students only. We are proud to have helped these kids to get into the right path to pursue their dreams.
Carlos finished high-schoolAfter a long journey, Carlos M. got his high-school diploma in the Summer of 2018. Born in mainland Puebla state, Carlos moved along with his family to San Jose del Cabo in 2013. They found shelter with relatives in the irregular settlement of the dry arroyo. He was 14 at the time and dreamed about studying, but his parents were not 100% supportive. They did not only lack of the resources needed, but because of prejudiced ideas towards education.
Thanks to the support of Carlo’s extended family, Liga MAC was able to take him under our wing. We helped him to complete junior-high school in the open system. In Summer, 2015 he got back into track and enrolled in a regular high-school along with kids of his age. However, money was scarce and he also had to get a job to bring food home. Carlos is now ready to pursue his higher education to become an IT Engineer.
