Mexico, country of dreams

Almost half of Mexico consists of mountainous terrain where thousands of small communities live in isolation and economic deprivation.

While basic education is theoretically guaranteed to all Mexicans, in reality the government struggles to reach these communities, which are often of indigenous origin.

Oaxaca

The fifth largest state in Mexico by surface area, and one of the poorest, Oaxaca cuts across the southern Sierra Madre mountain range.

Its great size and difficult topography make the provision of water, electricity, health and education extremely challenging.

“In constant collaboration”

CONAFE (National Council to Foment Education) is an organization created in 1971 to provide basic education to the most isolated, vulnerable and neglected communities.
Oaxaca is the third state, after Chiapas and Veracruz, with the most children served by CONAFE. The Foundation recognizes the work done by CONAFE and we have joined efforts so we can work jointly to the benefit of these communities.

Our Service Region

The Foundation has formed a working alliance with the Santa Maria Huatulco district of CONAFE, an area that includes 120 schools in 5 regions of Oaxaca characterized by extreme poverty and deprivation.
1- Santa María Huatulco
2- Pluma Hidalgo
3- San Miguel del Puerto
4- Santiago Xanica
5- San Mateo Piña

We believe in working with the Community

We work with school parents throughout the CONAFE district to help them determine where their biggest needs lie and to help them develop realistic and reachable solutions. Our role is to assist with planning and design, and to provide construction materials and expert labor.

The role of each community is to donate the land for construction, to provide unskilled labor, and to volunteer on multiple fronts as needed. The role both sides are expected to play is memorialized in a formal agreement.

Our areas of focus

We have defined four areas of focus that we believe are most important to these rural communities.

Education

We believe in the improvement of schools to create dignified conditions that foster an environment that encourages students to learn and teachers to teach. This includes not only the classroom environment but also sports and other extracurricular activities.

Work opportunities

We strive to empower community members to become more financially independent by fostering vocational opportunities.

Health

We believe in the importance of dental and medical health for every child in the community.

Global citizenship

We believe that integration to the outside world through the provision of internet enabled information is key to eliminating the isolation that contributes to economic hardship in these communities.

Investment

Each dollar or peso you can donate to these causes has an immediate impact on hundreds of lives.
