Help 455 At-Risk Children in Mexico Stay in School

by Fundacion EDUCA Mexico

Dear friend donors,

Due to your kind support to our project "Help 455 At-Risk Children in Mexico Stay in School" we have reactivated our project with a new goal of 16,000 USD. SEDAC's students and teachers feel very grateful and would like to know more about you. Moreover, Fundación EDUCA still needs to provide them with monetary resources since they do not have the necessary economic means to fully cover their costs per child.

I would like to remind you that thanks to our help, children have not deserted school; this is because their tuition has not been raised since 2009. Otherwise, parents would reconsider the cost of taking their child to school! We cannot afford losing these potentially developed children from attending. Moreover, the quality of their meals has been improved, since they now count with specialized nutritionist that guides the staff with more healthy food.

Thanks again for your support and we look forward to hearing from you soon!!

Best regards,

The EDUCA Team

First and foremost, I would like to deeply thank all of you for supporting our project.  With your kind donations we have been able to help SEDAC’s Preschool, benefiting directly 455 children who come from low income families.   

SEDAC provides not only education, but breakfast, child care and psychological services to disadvantaged boys and girls. Moreover, this project has benefited indirectly more than 734 parents in poor conditions, who wouldn’t be able to provide these services to their children otherwise.  

As reported earlier, with the money raised we were able to support the school with pro-active workshops of self-esteem encouragement in children, as well as in their parents. Additionally, activities regarding identifying, assimilating, and handling of feelings were contributed to enhance emotional intelligence. We could also help with the maintenance of their computer lab and the purchase of school supplies such as different types of paper, coloring pencils, paint, scissors, wooden sticks, straws, seeds, magazines, balls and balloons. Your donations also helped with resources appointed to provide a healthy breakfast and meal, which children could not have at home. Moreover, the school now has a professional psychological attention for children with learning disabilities and behavioral problems caused by living in a harsh environment at home.

 With your recurring and unique donations, the goal has been achieved almost completely.  We have only 47 USD remaining, which will give closure to this program.  As a result, we will soon post a new project called “Support Community’s Toy Library Conservation”, which will contribute with the necessary resources for the maintenance of a communitarian toy library, located in Zumpango, a marginalized area in the State of Mexico.  This project will benefit more than 2,300 abused and disadvantaged children, who do not have access to toys or games.  They attend almost daily because of the emotional and physical escape it provides. We need your help, so please join this new mission!! 

Thank you very much for your support.


The EDUCA Team

On behalf of the EDUCA Team, I would like to deeply thank the anonymous donators who have followed and supported our project. We really appreciate and recognize the effort! Thanks to all of you we are almost reaching our goal of $12,794 USD.

Children, as well as their parents in SEDAC Pre-School, feel profoundly touched by this action. Lots of kids will be able to keep attending this following school year, not to mention the food and additional services included. The tuition fees will not be raised in order to prevent drop out! With this donated amount, the school will be able to cover administrative and operational costs without affecting the family’s economy.

I reiterate my profound gratitude and it is because of people like you that children believe and hope for a better future in their harsh reality.


The EDUCA Team

The Fundación EDUCA Team would like to let you know that we are getting closer to our initial monetary goal, which is $12,794 USD. At the moment we have raised up to $ 8,455 USD; therefore, we have only $4,339 USD more to go!!

I would like to remind you the positive impact this donations cause. With your valuable contribution you are helping us provide early education, breakfast, child care and psychological services for 455 disadvantaged preschoolers in the Mexico City Metro Area whose working parents cannot afford these services otherwise. A new school year is coming up soon and we would feel very dissapointed if some of these preschoolers abandon their studies because of economic disadvantages.

We encourage you to keep donating, since our project has helped numerous children and families and we are looking forward to start supporting a new program.

Thank you very much!!


The EDUCA Team

Thank you for the support you give to our project! It is very important for us to continue with the efforts that will allow us to give these children an opportunity to access a better education and improve their living conditions. As you may know, the children that we support through this campaign have great deficiencies that impose a barrier for their learning skills and to lead a healthy up growing.

Thanks to your active participation we are reaching our monetary goal of fundraising for these 455 students at risk! With your recent donations, we have already gathered $8,050 US from our $12,000 US primary goal, which will help provide a permanent nutrition program, in addition to phsicological services, and parenting classes for low-income family members.

Specifically, your donations have supported pro-active workshops of self-esteem encouragement in children, as well as in their parents. This has helped reinforce individual qualities overall and improve behavior in children with learning disabilities. Additionally, activities regarding identifying, assimilating, and handling of feelings were provided to enhance emotional intelligence. Moreover, a dentist explained the importance of oral hygiene to foster dental care and instructed key techniques to do so.

We encourage you to keep fulfilling the dreams of these children by helping us keep them in a school that provides a learning and loving environment!!

Let us know what you think, thanks to you we are able to make this project a reality. We are more than happy to post more information that you find appealing, so don't forget to comment in the box below.
