Dear friends

 

How are you doing? We hope you are fine and happy, we hope you had a wonderful 2016!

Do you remember us? We are the board members of Puerta Abierta IAP, those who are dreaming, with you, of a better and more equal world.

That’s why we fight every single day together with you: we both strongly believe in the power of people’s solidarity, don’t we?

 So my dear friend I want to tell you that we built a “Tree of Dreams”! are you excited? Now you are probably wondering, “what’s that? Is it a wooden tree?”.. yes, it’s a magical wooden tree, where people like you tie bracelets that we are selling all around Mexico to say and remind: STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN.

Yes, because in Mexico numbers are horrible: 60 out of 100 women are victims of some kind of violence, and 7 out of 10 children have been abused.

Where does violence come from? When I have no other means to modify my surrounding, I choose to modify the people that are in it; however, when I fail to do so, I try to control people by using violence and I let others control myself by receiving violence.

 Today we want to ask you to help us, to choose your bracelets and to tie them to the “Tree of Dreams”. Your donations this December will help us, me and you, to change Mexico and all the rest of the world because we will be able to give our children the opportunity to keep on studying; education is the most powerful instrument to fight violence.

 

We need to educate our children in order to make them strong and able to dream a future different from the one full of abuse and fear that they suffered.

Dream with us like you always do; believe in children to change the world. All together we can make a huge difference. Donate this December so our girls keep up with their studies.

Every bracelet is different, each one has a different message: peace, love, well-being. Choose yours and be a part of this big challenge.

With all our hearts

Picnics and Solidarity

PICNICS AND SOLIDARITY

Solidarity means constructing chains; human chains of love which can change the world.

I mean, this is what we think it means, it is not what the dictionary will tell you! We can say that is how we visualize this word in Puerta Abierta and how we visualize you, dear Donor. Because we feel that with your support for their education you’re holding our girl’s hands, thanks, we feel your presence always.

It is said that the most important thing in educating children is giving them the example through our behaviour;  it is not easy at all to give a “ quality education“ to our children. Well, here in Puerta Abierta we want to thank you because we think that YOUR EXAMPLE of solidarity has taught our little girls to hold each other hands. They support each other, they love each other. You’ll be proud to know that Karla, one of our girls, is currently attending a school near Mexico City where she’s learning professional gastronomy. It is a big success for her, because just after having finished high school she had to pass a test to be accepted. As I mentioned, the others girls supported her emotionally. They really acted like family, which makes us extremely happy.

And now that Karla is there they can visit her once a month and… guess what? The last time they went they prepared her favourite sandwiches and had a beautiful picnic. I can imagine that what I’m telling you may seem a small thing but believe me that it’s a wonderful thing for these children; because to learn the solidarity of love, to accept to be part of a human chain of love, for children like ours who have been emotionally hurt, is a big challenge.

So dear Donor.. once again THANK YOU for being an example for our little girls: thanks to you they have a quality education, thanks to you they know what unconditional love and solidarity mean .

I hope you can join us for the next picnic with Karla ! You’re invited of course!!!

With all our love

Puerta Abierta I.A.P
