July 11, 2017 – Zurixx is proud to announce its support of Entreamigos, a San Pancho, Mexico-based nonprofit whose mission is to increase learning opportunities for children and families through the implementation of educational programs based on principles of integration and collective community action. Zurixx’s donation of $6,000 helped fund the education of two young students who hope to be a force for positive change in their community.
The vision of Entreamigos is to provide the children and families of San Pancho with the skills needed to contribute to their changing communities in a positive way, and Entreamigos moves towards that vision partially through their scholarship program.
Studnts come from families where education is not the priority. Their families need them working to help support the household, so making the decision to break the cycle and focus on education is a hard one for them; a lot of students in their community are disowned by their families. These students have the long-term vision but can’t fund it, and that’s where donations like this can really make a difference.
“At Zurixx we believe that community outreach is one of the cornerstones of our success,” said Jim Carlson, CEO of Zurixx. “Whether it be working with a large cancer research institute in Salt Lake City or donating to libraries local to our Puerto Rico office, we try to incorporate charity as much as possible into our business model. We look forward to partnering again with Entreamigos in the future.”
