#3022419 - Providing a place for children to live, learn, and flourish

Annual Goal: $125,000.00
Location: Mexico

Describe the need affecting the community.

In this region of Nuevo progreso and Rio Bravo, Tamaulipas, there are no Childrens Home available. Children in the need of this service are being sent to Reynosa, the biggest city in the area. Relatives of these minors have a hard time visiting the kids because of distance.

The violence created by the drug cartels and mafias that affects this area where parents, mainly men, have got involved in criminal activities, has created an increase of children with no parents or parents that cannot take good care of the children. A lot of parents have been incarcerated or killed.

All of these families are still living in poverty conditions.

How will this Advance project help to address the need?

We will serve 20 kids on our first phase and they will receive formal education. We will also work with their relatives to find the best ways to raise these kids.

Describe the primary goal of the project.

Alleviate the suffering of orphans, single parents and/or grand parents, by taking care 24/7 of children without parents or whose parents cannot take care of them. We will partner with the State Government, the local Churches and other agencies to collaborate on the wellness of the children.

Measurable Changes:

This will be the only State approved Childrens Home in the town of Nuevo Progreso and the nearest City of Rio Bravo for a total population of 190 thousand people.
