Challenge

The public education system in Mexico is ranked among the worst in the OECD countries. With 75% of the children who enroll in primary school not completing high school, the majority of the country’s population is not equipped with the basic skills needed to break out of poverty. Many of the nation’s over-crowded schools lack computers for their students, depriving Mexico’s youth of the technological competency required to succeed in today’s labor market.

Solution

The RIA provides low-income children with quality courses on computers, English, reading and studying techniques and the opportunity to acquire online high school degrees. 100% of all donations go towards funding scholarships for students under 18.

Long-Term Impact

The scholarships will provide quality education to approximately 400 underprivileged children. At the RIA, students will develop the skills necessary to succeed in school, compete in the labor market and break out of poverty.
