Supporting children's development in Mexico



Supporting children's development in Playa del Carmen by providing resources to two childcare centres: toy libraries and the equine therapy and integral care centre. The main focus of this project is to contribute to eradicate children exploitation, slavery, physical, psychological and sexual abuse through different workshops and programs. We are also supporting a local organization created by parents with children with disabilities, where formal education and therapies are given.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Many children in Quintana Roo suffer from some form abandonment, sexual abuse, exploitation with low or no access to education. In Playa del Carmen, many adults work in the tourist industry and work long hours. Children are left unattended and are exposed to different threats such as gang's recruitment. In Mexico 5.1% of the population suffer some type of disability and are often discriminated. Therapy can be expensive and government authorities lack resources to provide adequate treatment.

How will this project solve this problem?

By empowering children, teaching them about their rights through different workshops and programs. This project is lead by Save the Children in a space called "toy libraries", which are recreational and education spaces where children can come to learn through games, talks and workshops. Secondly, we aim to provide adequate attention and therapies to improve children with special needs life quality. The project supports a local organization created by parents with children with disabilities.

Potential Long Term Impact

We aim to empower children to create responsible adults that will have a better impact in the community. Children will learn to identify threats and stay away from them, which will impact positively the society around. Through our work, the Health centre can expand and offer their services to more children. This will diminish the amount of children left unattended and without therapies. In particular, the work with children with special needs will help them to become productive citizens.
