Summary

Mexico has a deep educational problem. Not all kids have the same opportunities and neither do they have a responsible adult guiding them and taking care of them. In Peraj we belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. We partner up elementary school kids with university students to meet twice a week to do activities that will help develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of both mentors and mentees.

Challenge

Children in Mexico hardly continue all the way in their education. Only 24 out of 100 children that start elementary school reach high school. The causes are varied but for the most part are due to the lack of positive role models in their lives, or just because they don't see any future in studying. Their environment is closed off and they don't see studying as a way to a better life.

Solution

By providing children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Meanwhile, the mentors discover how much they can impact and change the life of a child by being a positive role model.

Long-Term Impact

By partnering with parents/guardians, Universities, and others in the community we have found that the children working with their mentors have higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships, there is also avoidance of risky behaviors as well as educational success. We have seen it over the course of 15 generations of Peraj mentors and mentees. We know our mentoring program works, kids want and deserve to have better futures and achieve success in life.
