It takes ONE person (like you!) to make a huge difference in Alejandro's life. By sponsoring him, you're creating Team Alejandro and giving him a chance to break the cycle of poverty. Your $36 monthly gift is invested in his future and the lives of children like him in Mexico. 

And supporting a teen is important because they’re at higher risk for exposure to gangs, pregnancy, drugs and more. Your encouragement will give hope and confidence during a crucial time in their lives.

Poverty in Mexico

Kids growing up in poverty in Mexico face many tough challenges, including epidemic health and dental issues, exposure to violence, especially related to drug trafficking, high teen pregnancy rates and far-reaching shortcomings in education.

That's why we focus on providing health and nutrition programs for parents and kids, activities and resources in our centers to learn and grow in safety, youth programs to help kids understand the consequences of risky behaviors, and educational assistance like tutoring and training.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
