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.
