Save The Children figures indicate that 95% of children suffer from some type of aggression, 70% in Quintana Roo suffer abandonment, 43% of children between 6 and 17 know a gang member, and 25% have seen drugs or know another child that sells them. Our presence ensures that children who have been affected by abuse, abandonment or the drugs trade will have the support that they need to stay safe should they come into contact with these threats in the future.
This project is led by Save the Children in a space called "toy libraries" or Ludoteca, which are recreational and education spaces where children can come to learn through games, talks and workshops. Working at the Ludoteca (Toy Library), our volunteers do specific tasks include helping the children with their homework, playing games and preparing educational resources. A lot of the work focuses on teaching the children how to stay safe, from being able to identify different forms of violence to delivering general health and safety measures and precautions, such as during severe weather.
