Improve Mexican Communities by feeding 500 people

by Caritas de Saltillo A.C.

Summary

Caritas de Saltillo plans to renovate five community kitchens in order to provide 500 daily meals in five community centers. The community centers are located in the areas with extreme poverty. The family mothers that belong to the community prepare the food. Besides the daily meals, we plan to support the community with health services, educational advice, scholarships and productive projects to improve the overall community condition.

Challenge

The recent poverty range has increased in Mexico going to more than 52 million people according to the Mexican National Council for Evaluation of Social Development Policy (Coneval). This boost was due to the increase of people with lack of food. We, at Caritas de Saltillo, are committed to provide 500 daily meals once the five community kitchens are renovated and ready to help lower the hunger and increase the quality of life of the humblest people in Saltillo Coahuila, Mexico.

Solution

In the community centers besides providing a daily meal, Caritas de Saltillo also offers educational support and productive projects for a self-sustaining community. The children eating at least one healthy meal per day will have better academic performance and therefore will be able to get a better quality of life. The people will have less gastrointestinal diseases as they will be learning to eat better and as a healthy people, they will most likely become active members of the community.

Long-Term Impact

Our long term goal is continue feeding people in extreme poverty, persist on educating them in regards to quality nutrition and to have self-sustaining families in our communities through our productive projects.
