San Juan Boarding School Refurbishment, Mexico

San Juan Boarding School Refurbishment, Mexico

This school, run by the Mexican Association, gives an education and home to children whose parents are no longer alive, who are violent, in prison, addicted to drugs or who simply cannot afford to look after them.

It provides a safe haven, a home and a learning environment as well as psychological and spiritual support.  The children are born into tremendously difficult situations. Through the school, they benefit from cultural and recreational activities, sport coaching, pastoral and medical care. The Fund’s support is directed towards the nutritional provision for the children, many of whom are malnourished on arrival and whose development has already suffered as a result. In addition to working with families and children to enhance understanding of basic nutritional needs and cooking, the grant enables the school to build a new, better-equipped kitchen.
