We are very happy to share with you that thanks to your wonderful support we have achieved great results in SEDAC!

Because of your help we have decided to increase our goal to address a further concern in the school. As many know, there are growing numbers of bullying in younger children, egocentric behaviors, lack of team work and concern for social wellbeing. These topics need to be attended urgently . We are going to begin a new program which develops the capacity of discernment in children ages 4 to 7 and through which they gain life skills such as empathy, compassion and wisdom. As children understand and use these life skills they will become more aware of their relationship with others, make better assesments and create a solid platform for moral and social values.

 We hope that you continue to be as enthusiastic towards this new phase as we are! We greatly appreciate all your support and look forward to sharing great results from this program soon!

 Kind regards,

Dear Friends and Donors:

First and foremost, We would like to deeply thank all of you for supporting our project.  With your kind donations we have been able to help SEDAC’s Preschool, benefiting 455 children directly, who come from low income families.   

SEDAC provides not only education, but breakfast, child care and psychological services to disadvantaged boys and girls. Moreover, this project has benefited indirectly more than 734 parents in precarious conditions, who wouldn’t be able to provide these services to their children otherwise.  

As reported earlier, with the money raised we´ve been able to support the school with pro-active workshops that develop a healthy and strong self-esteem in these children as well as their parents. Additionally, activities regarding identifying, assimilating, and emotion management are fundamental to enhance emotional intelligence. We were able to help with the maintenance of their computer lab and the purchase of school supplies necessary for next school year´s activities. Your donations have also helped with resources used to provide a nutritious breakfast and lunch, which children could not have at home. Moreover, the school now has a professional psychologist who attends children with learning disabilities and behavioral problems caused mainly by a harsh living environment.

With your donations, our goal has been exceeded. We sincerely appreciate your contributions to this project, which have made it possible to keep providing these services to SEDAC during the school year.

As a final follow up, we will be sending you some pictures of the kids coming back for the next school year in early September.

Thank you very much for your support!

Warm regards,

The EDUCA Team

Dearest friends and donors,

We are very glad to announce that our 16,000 usd goal is about to be reached. The SEDAC preschoolers have been benefiting from the privilege of attending school, as well as enjoying healthy meals, schools supplies, day care, psychological therapy among other services. It has also has allowed SEDAC not to raise school fees thus preventing drop out. All of this has been possible thanks to your generous support.

We are now on the last stretch of funding the project, and hope to reach our goal very soon. On behalf of SEDAC´s staff, parents, and kids, we reiterate our profound gratitude and it is because of people like you that children believe and hope for a better future in their harsh reality.

The EDUCA team thanks you for your generosity!

Have a great day!

Children At Lunch

In early February I had the privilege of visiting with Fundacion EDUCA and Catherine de la Torre.  Catherine took me to visit the SEDAC pre-school.  It was certainly a memorable afternoon and a true joy to see the amazing work that was being conducted by EDUCA.  

Those of you that have contributed to this amazing project are investing your finances towards a meaningful cause.  In addition, the staff at EDUCA are highly dedicated and strive to ensure that quality measures are adhered to and donor dollars are put to best use.

It is without reservation that I recommend the work of EDUCA and the SEDAC school project.  I would highly encourage everyone to consider making a small contribution to support the children of this school and to help EDUCA reach it's fundraising goal of $16,000.  It is MOST CERTAINLY money well spent.  

Dear friend donors,

Due to your kind support to our project "Help 455 At-Risk Children in Mexico Stay in School" we have reactivated our project with a new goal of 16,000 USD. SEDAC's students and teachers feel very grateful and would like to know more about you. Moreover, Fundación EDUCA still needs to provide them with monetary resources since they do not have the necessary economic means to fully cover their costs per child.

I would like to remind you that thanks to our help, children have not deserted school; this is because their tuition has not been raised since 2009. Otherwise, parents would reconsider the cost of taking their child to school! We cannot afford losing these potentially developed children from attending. Moreover, the quality of their meals has been improved, since they now count with specialized nutritionist that guides the staff with more healthy food.

Thanks again for your support and we look forward to hearing from you soon!!

Best regards,

The EDUCA Team
