Challenge

Girls living in Mexico today face many challenges. Over 50% of the population of Mexico lives in poverty, 39.5% lack access to basic health care and 20.7% lack access to sufficient food. In Mexico, only a primary education (grades 1-6) is mandatory. Each year more than 700,000 students drop out of basic education - only 27% make it to high school graduation. For most girls in Mexico, the barriers to success are great.

Solution

Christel House works to break the cycle of poverty for these girls from under-served communities in Mexico providing top-quality K-12 education. Because we understand that a child needs to be whole and healthy to reach success, we provide students with daily nutrition, regular health care, and character/life skills development. We continue our support after graduation, helping students transition in higher education and employment.

Long-Term Impact

Breaking the cycle of poverty impacts the student, their family, and future generations. We also provide character development programming that encourages the student to make the world a better place. This multiplier effect will ultimately transform communities.
