Summary

The project will strengthen the education, nutrition and values for 30 adolescents in socioeconomic crisis in the highlands of Chiapas. We will implement life-skills workshops and tools for the beneficiaries to approach life better equipped to improve their conditions. We will promote their reintegration into school and consistent attendance. They will receive a daily healthy snack to improve their overall nutrition. They will learn trades that will open better job opportunities than in streets

Challenge

Chiapas is the state with the highest levels of poverty in Mexico. Many families dont have enough income, which forces all family members to work long hours. Children and adolescents are thus deprived of their right to education, having to work in the streets, with all the risks that this entails, including verbal and physical abuse of all kinds. Family disintegration, contact with criminal groups and migration in extremely dangerous conditions are some of the situations that children face daily

Solution

Chantiik will provide empowerment programs through 10 hours of workshops and weekly training to 30 beneficiaries. A monthly school scholarship will be provided to encourage their reintegration and consistent attendance. A nutritious snack will be provided to improve the usual diet of each beneficiary. Activities are carried out collectively with a focus on rights, values and gender equity. The workshops cover a range of skills and topics, including baking, rights and values, computing and others

Long-Term Impact

30 students will benefit from: - Strengthened life skills, academic skills, rights and values. - A healthier diet. - Strengthened value system and self-esteem, enhancing their abilities and improving their daily habits. - Better academic and labor opportunities.
