Summary

After the earthquakes of September 2017 in Mexico, the community of Asuncion Ixtaltepec Oaxaca suffered severe damage, not only to their homes and community buildings, but also to the local economy with destruction or damage to their livelihoods. Many of the young people of the Oaxacan communities can not study due to the lack of economic resources, which is why we present this proposal and thus offer them an opportunity to continue their high school studies.

Challenge

Currently in Mexico the dropout rate ranges between 13.3 and 15.5%. , particularly in the state of Oaxaca, represents 14.2%. According to official figures between 600 and 700 thousand young people a year leave the high shool. In addition to the above, the earthquakes of September 2017, deepened the crisis in families, so that the few economic resources available were allocated to food and basic services, leaving education in the background.

Solution

A scholarship will allow these young people of Ixtaltepec to continue with their high shool studies, which opens a window of opportunity for them to acquire more knowledge, involvement with the community and, in the future, wider possibilities to study a university career that will facilitate them access to work life. It is important to point out that as scholars of Fundacion Comunitaria Oaxaca, young people have to develop a community project, thus achieving a connection to their environment

Long-Term Impact

The educational process that young people live in the upper secondary level is of great relevance for community life. Therefore, influencing their educational process by providing the opportunity to maintain and conclude, will have an impact, in the long term, in their own community.
