Single working Moms of Central Mexico, living in poverty, need to work. If they do not have a safe place for their children during the work day, they have few options, and sometimes are forced to leave their children home alone. The other option is to take them to work, which can affect employability. Daycare and preschool costs can be too high for some low-income families, so mothers are forced to choose between income and safety, and children often suffer.
Centro Infantil de los Angeles provides free, high-quality daycare and preschool education to children from the most financially challenged families in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Our programs afford working parents (mostly single mothers) the comfort of knowing that their children are fed, nurtured, and taught in a safe and caring environment. Free childcare enables parents to work and make a better life for their children, who are more prepared to succeed in primary school and beyond.
This time of year at CILA, we say "Nos Vemos" to our graduates, say "Good Job!" to those moving up to the next level, and say "Bienvenidos" to the children we welcome for the first time. The new year has many costs, so this summer support our impactful programs as our kids transition to their next phases. Donate today to show your passion for youth and education, and say congratulations to all our ninos as they grow up and make us proud.
