September 15th Celebration

Last September 15th on the anniversary of Mexico’s Independence an outdoor fair was held at our Day Center to commemorate the event.

The young people had fun, ate, played and danced big time. All could enjoy the fun Mexican games:  snakes and ladders, potato sack races, pin the tail on the donkey, spinning tops and other attractions. The favorite activity of the afternoon was Bingo with appearances by the mermaid, the barrel and the ladder.

We all enjoyed a very Mexican menu with the traditional and tasty pozole along with fresh fruit drinks. Mangos and jicama with chile powder were put out and the youngsters quickly got in line to try them with lime and salt. Desserts were part of the get together including rice pudding and Mexican candies.

So the afternoon was spent in laughter, with good company and the happiness generated by being part of a community that cares about children, young people and their families’ rights to recreation and celebration.

Pro Ninos

Tenemos una batalla por ganar y juntos podemos hacerlo ...

Cuando un niño vive en un mundo violento y lleno de desigualdades, donde carece de las oportunidades y la atención que necesita para su desarrollo, su futuro está en peligro.

Pasa muchas horas solo, porque sus padres tienen que trabajar, y cuando vuelven a casa, no saben cómo comunicarse con él. Incluso en la escuela, él no se siente apoyado. Incluso ha pensado en dejarlo.

Más y más, prefiere estar en la calle en lugar de ir a la escuela o quedarse en casa. En la calle no está solo, siempre hay gente alrededor para hablar y hacer cosas con él y tiene acceso a sustancias que crean una sensación de bienestar.

Sin embargo, tendrá que enfrentar:

Explotación

Discriminación

Violencia

Enfermedad

Adicciones

¿Muerte?

En Pro Ninos estamos trabajando para hacer algo al respecto.

Ofrecemos apoyo para que pueda desarrollar habilidades con las que pueda manejar situaciones que lo ponen en riesgo.

Le facilitamos que reciba tratamiento médico, psicológico y de abuso de sustancias para que esté sano.

También trabajamos con sus padres y profesores para que también puedan desarrollar habilidades para guiarlo, escucharlo y cuidarlo.

Queremos que esto suceda con más niños que viven en ambientes de violencia y desigualdad para que puedan tener el poder de cambiar su vida en la calle por el futuro que sueñan.

¿Vas a unirte a esta batalla?

Parental Skills Workshop, recreational trip.

The first recreational trip held last April 30, scheduled within the activities of the "Parental Skills Workshop" carried out at the Family Care Program (PAF) of Fundación Pro Niños de la Calle I. A. P.

The parents and their children, beneficiaries of this care program, attended with the educators to Bioparque Estrellatheme park, where besides being able to see up close, feed and touch animal species that live in freedom; they were able to strengthen their coexistence ties.

The recreational trip objectives were fostering coexistence ties in safe spaces through physical and recreational activities to generate teamwork, reflection and sharing experiences among family members.

Despite being a group activity, each parent took care of the integrity of their children, seeking to strengthen with this, the exercise of responsible parenthood in a place other than home. Another important activity was the lunch preparation  that was the parents responsibility, trying to strengthen teamwork.

At the end of the day an assembly was held in which the parents shared their experiences on how to carry out a responsible parenthood outside the home and with this, seek to strengthen a support network among the attending families.

A total of 40 attendees, 14 parents and 26 children and adolescents were the beneficiaries that witnessed this trip.
