Challenge

Chiapas is one of the states with more educational lag, marked by the 2nd place in illiteracy, as well as the 4th place in not finishing the primary school, 31st in finishing high school, as a result the 1st place in the educational lag. This is why we are joining efforts between entrepreneurs, volunteers and organizations to reduce this inequality gap. Where education and training for life will be the only tools that allow them to change their quality of life.

Solution

Provide support and tools to vulnerables groups of the society, through activities, educational and productive projects, to raise up their standard of living, their civic awareness and the development of their skills in a sustainable way at mid-and long term.

Long-Term Impact

Educated children will be able to pursue higher education and job opportunities in the fields of their choice. They will be pillars of support for their home, parents and the community. Gender skewing in the community will recede over time. Importantly, it also ensures that the next generation gets far better parenting and therefore a better life.
