Pasitos de Luz is a daycare for disabled children from low income families. If a family has a reliable source for day care their child, they have a better chance of creating and keeping a stable home. We first heard about Pasitos de Luz in Puerto Vallarta when a friend volunteered to help during her winter’s stay here. 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! Visitors at Pasitos de Luz are welcome at all times and they are happy to conduct tours of the facilities.

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! Pasitos de Luz in Puerto Vallarta is a fully registered charity, established in 2000 and is open weekdays during normal school hours. For information on how you can contribute, visit their website www.pasitosdeluz.org. You can talk to someone by calling 322 299 3625 and their email is info@pasitosdeluz.org .

Que es cómo es.
