About Us

www.casa.org.mx

CASA is a 30-year-old grassroots, youth-driven organization that proudly serves 80,000 people a year throughout Mexico. Established in San Miguel de Allende, in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato, CASA reaches beyond the borders of the state, impacting the country’s maternal & newborn health system through its midwifery advocacy efforts.

CASA is a place where youth thrive, in a country where educational and employment opportunities are scarce, especially for teens. It is proof that investing in at-risk-youth and empowering them to serve their communities, can have a long-lasting impact on their families, their lives, and the lives of those around them. “Teaching others to teach” is a pedagogy that has enabled hundreds to change the lives of thousands. Its innovative programs benefit, inspire and empower people throughout Mexico and all over the world.
