Providing a place for children to live, learn, and flourish
Describe the need affecting 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 caannot take good care of the children. A lot of parents have been incarceleted or killed. All of these families are still living in poverty conditions.
How will this Advance project help to address the need?
We will serv 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
Alliviate 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.
Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project
We will be supervised by the State and the City, we will measure our success according to the number of children that we will be serving and the outcomes of it.
