Our work is organized through programs orientated towards the elimination of obstacles that restrict the integral development of children and young people’s abilities, with the goal of ensuring that their education will help them fulfill their potential.


For this we have identified a series of specific problems:


  • The cost of compulsory school uniforms and footwear, books and school supplies, enrollment fee (in the case of high school) exceeds the economic possibilities of many families, which is the reason why there is such a high drop-out rate.

  • There is the problem of malnutrition. A large percentage of children come to school without having eaten breakfast.

  • Many parents have a poor level of education or long working hours so they cannot help their children do their homework or go through topics they find difficult.

  • From junior high school, addiction and bullying have been on the increase.


Based on this diagnosis, we dedicate our efforts and our work to creating programs aimed at dealing with these difficulties and identifying the students with greater needs in order to integrate them into our programs.





Cholul is a community located in the northwest of Mérida, Yucatán (Mexico) and has an approximate population of 6,000 people. Most of its inhabitants are of Mayan origin and the majority of the elderly people speak the Mayan language. 


The most common professions among the inhabitants are construction and domestic work. Because it is so close to Mérida, capital of the State of Yucatán, it has become a very attractive place in which to live, which has contributed to its accelerated growth.


Cholul has a rich history as it was built on the ruins of a pre-Hispanic settlement. Many remains of pre-Columbian structures have recently been discovered on the edges of the village. In the main plaza there is a catholic church from the XVI century, built after the arrival of the Spaniards to the region.


Cholul has one primary school where children can attend classes either in the morning or in the evening, one junior high school and one high school.
