This May 15th, we celebrate the incredible women and mothers of Centro Infantil de los Angeles. Their dedication to making a better life for their families is an inspiration to us all. This Mother's Day, we are raising funds so that we may continue our support of these courageous women.
Many mothers are the only source of income for their families in San Miguel. The United Nations estimates that Mexico is the nation with the second largest number of emigrants in the world. Men who emigrate may leave women solely responsible to raise their children. More women in Mexico are taking on motherhood single-handedly, and if they do not have a safe place for their children during the work day, they have no choice but to leave them in challenging circumstances.
Mothers in San Miguel de Allende look to us for help. We provide free, high-quality daycare and preschool education to children from the most financially challenged families in San Miguel de Allende. Our programs afford working parents (mostly single mothers) the comfort of knowing that their children are fed, nurtured, and taught in a safe and caring environment. Free childcare enables parents to work and make a better life for their children, who are more prepared to succeed in primary school.
Mothers are able to work with confidence and achieve their goals, and help support their children on their path to a bright future. Our preschool graduates have regularly scored above average on standardized tests administered by the Secretary of Education of the State of Guanajuato. Primary school teachers report that CILA graduates are very well-prepared. Supporting mothers and women makes a difference in their lives and of the lives of the next generation.
