Casa de los Angeles - Feed 150 kids for a year!

by Casa de los Angeles

Summary

Feeding kids and their moms is part of the work of the daycare center, Casa de los Angeles in central Mexico. Often single parent families come to us suffering from malnutrition. We are able to serve breakfast and lunch to our kids and their moms for about 40 cents per day per person. That's 150 people every day who eat a hearty breakfast to start the day and a solid lunch before they go home. They are now thriving!

Challenge

Single working moms were leaving their children home alone before Casa de los Angeles was founded . . . or they were unable to work. In 13 years Casa de los Angeles has cared for more than 1500 children. In return for the care of their children, the mothers give one hour of service: being the extra hands in classrooms, cleaning our patio, helping in the kitchen. Their children now have a safe place to play and learn while moms work to make a better life for their family.

Solution

We provide daycare and preschool to young children so that mothers can go to work without worry. Breakfast and lunch are served to both children and mothers as they begin to thrive. Since the moms give an hour of service each day they are participating in the life of our center and have formed a community of people who care while their self-esteem grows.

Long-Term Impact

Each year 150 children and mothers are served at Casa de los Angeles. Early childhood education and nutritious meals sets the foundation for success in school for the children; mothers have the opportunity to work so that they can support their family and create a better future and move out of poverty.
