Fundacion EDUCA Mexico, A.C.
Since 1995, EDUCA has been supporting low-income community schools to improve their educational quality and help them attain self-sufficiency. We currently support 39 schools in 8 Mexican states, benefiting 11,777 children (ages 0 to 17) and a total population of 33,193 among teachers, school staff, parents and community members. Our beneficiaries come from poverty-stricken, dysfunctional households (head-of-households are usually unskilled, single- working mothers and/or migrant workers); many suffer malnutrition, violence, lack of basic utilities and healthcare. Therefore, we support schools that provide both quality education and services such as: meals, on-site doctors, psychologists, tutoring, creative libraries, and parenting classes.
