The Cozumel Chrysalis
Dedicated to helping children in need achieve their full potential!
The Cozumel Chrysalis Group is a non-profit organization dedicated
to providing financial scholastic support for the island's students. Mexican
public school students pay a registration fee and must provide their own uniforms
and classroom supplies. Many families in Cozumel lack the financial ability
to send their children to school. The Cozumel Chrysalis Group assists those
students who show a desire to better their lives through education, so that
they can meet and maintain established academic standards.
Our organization began by assisting 10 students in 1995, and in 14 years that number has grown to over 220! Once a child has entered our program, they receive assistance throughout their school years. Additional assistance is always welcome!
A one-time contribution of $100 per elementary student or $220 per Jr or High School student will provide assistance for one year of education. Click here for Sponsorship Form or Email for more information.
