Summary

Many times street children and youth does not choose between work and school. That's were we act giving them a place with material, medical and psychological support so they can build a better life and know their rights. Every day for almost thirty years we have been working side by side with more than 15,000 kids and teenagers in Mexico City, with your help, we would be able to help more street-working children sending them to school where they belong.

Challenge

Street youth population in Mexico City suffer extreme privation, abandonment, denial of dignity, social exclusion, illiteracy and serious health problems resulting from violence, malnutrition, lack of hygiene, drug abuse and abusive labor. All these experiences are highly traumatic and have life-long consequences for the children, yet, we know for sure, that with our help, it is possible to overcome these problems and get them off the street for good.

Solution

ednica operates in three community centers, so that girls, boys and adolescents working on the street, know and exercise their human rights, focused on their education. With your help, through non-formal education processes and the development of cognitive skills, we can help improve their school performance and prevent them from dropping out of school. Their integral development is strengthened with actions to care for their physical and emotional health, and care for their families.

Long-Term Impact

We have happily been part of many individual success stories. For example, some of our present staff members were once street children that passed through our program. That is the long-term impact we hope to achieve: that street children have the ability to choose between street labor and formal labor and, at best, putting school above all so they can reach a better life outside the street. All we do helps promote a more democratic society engaged in fighting for social justice and equality.
