Challenge

The Diana Laura Rioja's elementary school, in the Wixarika Sierra in northern Jalisco, has 74 students in 6 elementary grades but only 2 classrooms. Students have to take classes in the principal's office and in a little hut with very bad lighting and temperature conditions, sharing the spaces between groups. These conditions represent an extra challenge for the students, when some of them already have to walk 80 minutes to get to the school and go back to their homes, everyday.

Solution

Fundacion Iyari Alba will build school infrastructure with a functional architectural and structural design, also with workforce contribution from the students parents. We have already built one classroom and we're fundraising the money for the next one.

Long-Term Impact

Education will give Wixaritari children tools and knowledge to contribute to the development of their community and the preservation of their culture, for which adequate school infrastructure is required, according to the regulations of the Ministry of Public Education in Mexico.
