Educate a Mexico Girl-Child from the Barrios



Christel House provides impoverished Mexican girls from the barrios with life-changing, quality education, health care, nutritious meals, character/life skills development and continued guidance after graduation. Our goal is to help these girls overcome the barriers of poverty and become self-sufficient, contributing members of society.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Girls living in Mexico today face many challenges. Over 50% of the population of Mexico lives in poverty, 39.5% lack access to basic health care and 20.7% lack access to sufficient food. In Mexico, only a primary education (grades 1-6) is mandatory. Each year more than 700,000 students drop out of basic education - only 27% make it to high school graduation. For most girls in Mexico, the barriers to success are great.

How will this project solve this problem?

Christel House works to break the cycle of poverty for these girls - serving over 200 girls from the barrios of Mexico with top-quality K-9 education. Because we understand that a child needs to be whole and healthy to reach success, we provide students with daily nutrition, regular health care, and character / life skills development. We continue our support after graduation, helping girls transition in higher education and employment. Our success - 100% graduation rate and 98% retention rate.

Potential Long Term Impact

Breaking the cycle of poverty impacts the student, her family, and future generations. We also teach every child that she has the obligation to give back and make the world a better place. This multiplier effect will ultimately transform communities.
