All For One, One For All – Children of Puerto Vallarta in Need

Children…does that word of mere 2 syllables mean anything to you? Have we become numb to the needs of the less privileged? Well these are the important questions that we should be addressing today. The Head of Children Protection Services in Coapinole runs a great prevention program for all of those children who are under risk and this organization arranges group sessions for children every week that need help and support in any way.

This program provides sexual education to all the young girls ranging from 11 years of age to 18 who have one child or more. This program in addition to providing sex education to these young women also monitors these juvenile mothers and their respective babies. Vaccinations, hygiene matters and other health advices are provided to the 82 girls who are in this program.

The Child Protection Services also provide aid for all those children who are currently working. These children are those who are seen in the supermarkets, putting the grocery items of customers into bags. They also clean buses and sell flowers and gum to provide for them selves. Currently, there are about 146 children in this program.

There is another program, called the “10-14″ program, in it all the children range from being 10 to 14 years of age. These children are those who have been previously exempted from education or those who have never been educated. 42 children are enrolled in this program.

There are also children who are currently living without their parents under the supervision of their relatives or guardians. They are not living with their parents because they are in prison, and presently about 56 children are registered in this program.

In addition to all of these programs, there is another program called the “Kids At Risk.” These are the children which DIF believes will end up next on to the streets without any support or privilege.

All these children in Puerto Vallarta, despite being separate in different programs have one thing in common. They need your help, your support. All of these young kids are enrolled in the social services system and they are all in fact, children at great risk! These children will now be provided for and it has been decided that food packages would be granted to all of these children in need. DIF would continue working in the benefit of these children and to provide protection services to them. Bless them! So please, feel for these underprivileged children and help them. All they really need is a hand to support them and that could be YOU!

Dunce And For All

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came out, dunce and for all, about the proper conduct of a university and its head, saying, “Today, students should shout at the president and ask why liberal and secular university lecturers are present in the universities.”

To justify his abridgement of intellectual excellence, he recounted his lifelong self-study as an amateur astronomer, saying, “As a dimwit, I’ve observed the sky with special interest, and I noticed a long time ago that the moon and stars only shine when the sun is gone. By such observations, I learned how to be a bright start in the Islamic heavens, in fact, so bright I became the President. So out with the sun! “

Alarm immediately spread through the already paranoid minds of Iran’s few remaining liberal and secular intellects, with one professor, who refused to be named out of concern that the university administration might require him to wear a black turban, said, “If Mahmoud wants to weed out liberals, let him concentrate on the ones who are enriching uranium. Those we can spare.”

Western university profs were quick to condemn Ahmadinejad’s initiative, with a leading American educator saying, “I believe Mr. Ahmadinejad has it wrong. What his country needs is more liberal and secular intellectuals, in fact, enough to suggest to students that it’s time for the sun to rise again. So out with the moon and stars!”

Some massage seminars may even integrate herbal remedies and aromatherapy massage techniques.

For the professional therapist, more advanced massage seminars offer training and education in pain and stress management, as well as in-depth instruction in medical massage, cross-fiber technique, Trager therapy, myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, seated massage, among others. These massage seminars are sometimes subdivided into various levels of training.
