Project Pitillal, Reach Out to a Friend

Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 


Aviana Productions

Our vision is to strengthen and consolidate Project Pitillal as the best child care center for rehabilitation of needy children with Cerebral Palsy.

We are a non-profit organization equipped with special emphasis on rehabilitation, therapy, recreation and leisure which will particularly benefit the children of single mothers and poor families.

As a civil partnership legally formed by parents with children who suffer from Cerebral Palsy, we began our mission in 1991 in order to obtain economic resources required in order to move forward with the expensive therapies for the children.

We started in a small apartment in the La Aurora Colony of Puerto Vallarta.  We were blessed to receive land donated by Pitillal Ejido and subsequently constructed our present facility.

Some of the services we provide for the children include:

  • Food
  • Transportation
  • Physical Therapy
  • Sensory Therapy
  • Equine Therapy
  • Photo therapy
  • Chiropractic
  • Chromotherapy
  • Massage
  • Music Therapy
  • Dance Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Language Therapy

We need help in continuing the rehabilitation programs in providing treatment for these needy children so they can progress to a point where they can enjoy a normal life and join the regular education system.

How You Can Help Project Pitillal

To continue rehabilitation of our children, we see the need to apply for your valuable donations, which will be used for the treatment of our children.

We are able to provide tax deductible receipts through the Municipal DIF will for the amount donated on behalf of you or your company.

Another way to help us with our work is to sponsor events or activities in raising funds. There are many ways to support these children and maybe you can give us ideas to help us continue this altruistic work.

Godparent Program (Adopt a Child):

Our "Be a Godparent" program is a commitment to sponsor one of our children on a monthly basis. Your sponsorship will be aimed at the child's rehabilitation, food, medical and the purchase of needed orthopedic appliances.

Your support to our children will give them the opportunity to enjoy a productive and independent life.

You have the opportunity to improve lives by helping a child, providing smiles, and knowing that you are a special part of their lives.

If you choose to be a part of our new friends or sponsors program, you decide the amount and the time period that we can count on your support.  We will arrange for you to meet the child and provide you with a DIF issued US tax deductible receipt for you or your company.

We, in return, will keep you informed on a regular basis of your sponsored child's progress.

To join our Godparent Program, please supply us with the following information:

  • Your Name
  • Company Name
  • Address
  • Telephone
  • Tax Number (RFC)
  • Email Address
  • Monthly Donation Amount
  • Start Date
  • Sponsorship Period in Months or Years

If you choose to make a one time donation, just let us know the total amount you wish to donate.

We thank you, the children thank you and the families of the children thank you.
