Ramón Vargas Foundation
The Ramón Vargas Foundation is a nonprofit organization. The goal is to improve the quality of life of disabled children and youngsters who live in marginalized areas. The organizations that they support use the community based rehabilitation programs as established by the World Health Organization.
In 2000, tenor Ramón Vargas and his wife, Amalia, decided to start a foundation to celebrate the memory of their son Eduardo, who lived with cerebral palsy and died at the early age of six.
After their great loss, the only thing that comforted them was to know that their son had received all the attention and love that he needed, participating joyfully in all the activities of his family.
In creating this foundation, the goal of the Vargas family and their closest friends, was to offer children with disabilities a life of acceptance and inclusion to develop their capabilities.
After working fifteen years under the name: Eduardo Vargas Memorial Fund, today, the organization assumes itself as Ramón Vargas’ Foundation as a way to publicly affirm Ramón Vargas commitment with the disabled children of our country.
Currently, they support several organizations that work in marginalized areas of some states of Mexico. They accomplish this through accompaniment, training, and economical support of specific projects. Thus, they promote integral attention models designed to achieve a culture of inclusion. Their aim to strengthen not only the children with disabilities but their families, teachers, and other members within their communities.
