In Mexico City, thousands of children between the ages of 5 and 17 are working, many of them are not in school. In the streets, they are exposed to violence, abuse, drugs and exploitation. This situation makes it difficult for them to have access to better living conditions. Those who continue to study are likely to drop out of school or not perform well because of their adverse socio-family contexts. We want everyone to return to school and extend their education.
