October Project Update: Development Center in the News!

Recently, IMIFAP’s “I want to, I can” programs were featured in a national news report in Mexico! Check out the report (in Spanish) to learn more about the "I want to, I can” Development Center and to see footage of children taking part in the Center’s activities.

Using the Center’s “I want to, I can” philosophy, IMIFAP has implemented its life skills programs in public schools throughout Mexico. The news report applauds the results achieved by these school-based programs and features the Development Center in Hidalgo. In particular it highlights the center’s success working with children of migrants to improve their education, self esteem, development, and overall quality of life.

Our successes are being recognized! Please help us make the program even stronger by giving a recurring monthly donation to the children at the “I want to, I can” Development Center.


Hace poco, IMIFAP salió en las noticias nacionales en México – un programa de televisión realizó un reporte sobre nuestros exitosos programas escolares “Yo quiero, yo puedo”. Mira el noticiero para aprender más sobre el Centro de Desarrollo, los programas escolares “Yo quiero, yo puedo” de IMIFAP, y para ver a los niños participando en las actividades del Centro.

Utilizando la misma filosofía “Yo quiero, yo puedo” del Centro, IMIFAP ha implementado los programas de habilidades para la vida en escuelas públicas en varias comunidades de México. Sin embargo, el noticiero destaca el Centro de Desarrollo “Yo Quiero, Yo Puedo” para los niños de padres migratorios en Hidalgo para sacar a relucir nuestro éxito en fomentar una mejor educación, desarrollo, auto-confianza, y calidad de vida para los niños.

¡Nuestros éxitos están siendo reconocidos! Ayúdanos continuar mejorando el programa al hacer una donación mensual a los niños y niñas del Centro de Desarrollo “Yo Quiero, Yo Puedo”.
