Summary

Every year, hundreds of children migrate with their families to agricultural fields and do not have access to regular schools. In the state of Oaxaca there are 47 migrant schools in indigenous communities that provide the children with the possibility to continue studying. Our project wants to reinforce their education by implementing workshops in order to teach the children about their rights.

Challenge

Young children frequently have to migrate with their parents who work as seasonal, agricultural day laborers. The children of temporary agricultural workers are a group that is particularly vulnerable to their rights. As migrants sometimes they have to work in the fields and due to the mobility condition they do not have access to continuous and regular education. As a result, these children do not have the opportunity to live their childhood.

Solution

Our challenge of this project is to work with 60 children in one of these migrant schools to strengthen their rights as a child and sense of identity by aquiring these themes with creative, educative and playful methods. The project objetive is to create safe spaces where the children can express their dreams and learn what kinds of resources they can use to achieve them as well as strengthen their identification to their communities.

Long-Term Impact

The children will have the tools to break patterns of injustice as they get older. Knowing their rights, identity and how to achieve their goals from a young age will help them navigate through and away from oppressive systems that target agricultural day laborers and their families. Their happiness and progress also extends into their home where they can share what they have learned regarding their rights and labor exploitation.
