Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary donates $2,000 to needy kids in Tijuana


Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary donated $2,000 again this year to Hope Without Boundaries to help children who live in Canon de las Carretas at the old Tijuana dump attend public school.

To enroll in school, which is otherwise free, students must wear the school’s uniform and have the required gym clothes and school supplies, costing up to $150. Many parents cannot afford the cost. The nonprofit Hope Without Boundaries encourages these children to attend school, provides the funding for school uniforms and other costs, and follows up to ensure that the children are benefiting.

Hope Without Boundaries volunteers travel from the Solana Beach area to Carretas every second Saturday to provide cooked breakfasts, crafts, games, and occasional facilities improvements. Often they are joined by Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary volunteers and Interact Club students from Canyon Crest Academy (which is sponsored by Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary).

Lesley Sagar, president of Hope Without Boundaries, noted that the CCA students truly inspire the children that they work and play with. In fact, she said, “The children are very excited when they see the CCA students.”
