Summary

Children, young people and specifically girls become excluded and struggle to achieve optimal development because of social and economic inequality in Mexico. More importantly, girls that encounter such disadvantages become vulnerable to risky outcomes like dropping out of school, gender based violence, alcohol abuse, drug use and teen pregnancy.

Challenge

In the state of Hidalgo 15% of the population is indigenous and in Chiapas they represent 27%. Teenage girls ages 12 to 18 years have a dropping out rate of 21% in Chiapas and 16% in Hidalgo. Most importantly girls from these areas are highly vulnerable to teen pregnancy, gender based violence, cheap labor and poverty.

Solution

Empower indigenous girls with a program that trains teachers in life skills, gender equality and risk prevention. Trained teachers become agents of change and replicate with their students during class to achieve continuous and long lasting results. Parents will be actively involved during the program, in order to value the importance and increase their support towards their daughters' education.

Long-Term Impact

The majority of girls in the areas enrolls and attends school. Achieve an improvement in resilience and risky behavior regarding sexual health, violence and self-esteem among students. A sense of understanding and commitment to support girls' education is created within the communities.
