Challenge

The Highlands of Chiapas is one of the poorest regions in the country with approximately 90% of the indigenous population living in poverty and extreme poverty. The women and children make up the most vulnerable groups. The families do not have enough resources to afford healthcare and school expenses. In many cases, the children have to work to supplement the family's income. Children complete the 4th grade of basic education. 92% of the population don't have access to social security benefits.

Solution

We work with organizations and initiatives in our community to achieve greater impact and benefit for its inhabitants. At Amigos de San Cristobal A.C. we support and strengthen education and health projects that positively impact the region's vulnerable women and children through these actions: Literacy and regularization of basic education, Healthy nutrition through school canteens and gardens, Psycho-emotional support and care for children/women, Shelter for indigenous pregnant migrant women.

Long-Term Impact

Our goal is to ensure that in the future the children will have greater access to a healthy and balanced diet and will be provided with a quality education, thus improving their development. We also seek to empower women, particularly those who are victims of violence and in a precarious situation so that they and their children can have a better quality of life.
