This project will keep toy centers open and available to low income families. This will allow service to be provided for children from a marginalized area of Mexico. Academic achievements, social integration and raised self-esteem will be the result.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The Zumpango community, with almost 10,000 low income families, has recently reported pervasive vandalism, social desintegration, violence, drug addiction and apathy. For children living in this hostile environment, playing is not an option. Sadly, they live in crowded places with little room for creativity. Funds are needed to cover the running costs and the purchase of new material for the communal toy library, which provides an emotional escape for children.
How will this project solve this problem?
Their harsh reality has inspired EDUCA to provide a communal toy library. This project will facilitate a safe, nurturing, and loving atmosphere through learning with games, lectures, artistic activities, and computers.
Potential Long Term Impact
More than 2,395 children and 3,500 low-income parents have benefited from this library. We have engaged certain activities to raise an income and create a sustainable project, which will be handed over to the community afterward.
