Summary

Challenge

The under-served Mexican youths do not have access to quality education or they can't afford it. They have persistent challenges in front of them because public schools only provide the building and the teachers salary: even the poorest students must pay fees for registration, basic classroom supplies, all exams, certificates, uniforms and shoes. Without a well rounded proper education and life skills, it's almost impossible to seek gainful employment or pursue higher education.

Solution

Education is the only step up for these Mexican youths to climb out of poverty. HHWT actively provides scholarships for them stay in school. We are equipped with classrooms, necessary wood, tools and safety training on a variety of woodworking equipment. In addition we are training students in basic (Computer Aided Design) CAD in a classroom and online program. Our goal at HHWT is for students to survive, succeed and remain competitive in the future and specially in the new online work space.

Long-Term Impact

Mexican youths who are enrolled in our school will receive hands on vocational education in woodworking, carpentry and CAD skills. This will enable them to reach their full potential in any field they choose. This career/technical and life skills education is the key to unlocking their families from the vicious cycle of poverty. The students will be more confident upon participating in our program. Students enroll for a period or 3 to 7 years and then opportunity to move to higher education.
