The Mano Amiga de Chalco organization, through the “Transforming children's and young people's lives in Valle del Chalco” works to bring about the complete transformation of individuals who do not have the same development opportunities due to their socio-economic status.
Fundación MAPFRE has been collaborating on this project since 2014, accompanying the organization in their work to offer a comprehensive education: one which is human, intellectual and replete with values, for children from low-income backgrounds from this Mexican community which began as an illegal settlement 40 years ago and which continues to lack some basic services.
The program, which benefits 419 children under the age of 14 aims to offer a high-quality education in order for children to gain the necessary skills to deal with life successfully, applying this knowledge and these habits and virtues in their daily life.
The idea is that this knowledge will help them in their intellectual, sports and moral development, there by demonstrating positive and socially-responsible leadership.
The Mano Amiga de Chalco School has been working for 25 years in Valle de Chalco Solidaridad, educating more than 14,800 children and young people who have passed through their classrooms, between the ages of 3 and 18.
