Our work

Our working method is organized through programs aimed at eliminating the barriers that limit the comprehensive development of children and youth in the community. Through education they are given the necessary tools to fully develop their potential.

These programs address specific situations to reduce school dropout:  

  • FINANCIAL SUPPORT: The cost of mandatory school uniforms and shoes, books, school supplies, and registration fees exceed the financial means of most families.

  • EXTRA-SCHOOL ACADEMIC SUPPORT (TUTORIALS): Parents' level of schooling is 8 grades, so it is difficult for them to help their children to solve homework, and their work schedule does not allow them to do so.

  • SOCIAL TRAINING: The promotion of content and values for the training of citizens committed to their community and their health in order to generate life projects in the school population.

  • PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT: Attention to the inhabitants of the community, and particularly of diagnosed problems, as in the Secondary level where addictions, bullying, gangs are increasing.  


Cholul is a community located northeast of the city of Mérida, capital of the state of Yucatán, Mexico. It has an approximate population of 6 thousand inhabitants. Most of its inhabitants are of Mayan origin and almost all older adults speak the Mayan language. The most common trades among the residents are masonry and domestic jobs.


Due to its proximity to Mérida, it has become an attractive place to live, so the local urban population, from other states and foreigners is contributing to its accelerated growth.


Cholul has a rich history, since it was built on the ruins of a pre-Hispanic settlement, several vestiges of pre-Columbian constructions have recently been discovered on the shores of the community. The main square is located around a Catholic Church dating from the 16th century, built after the arrival of the Spanish in the region.


Educational services in Cholul include preschool (kindergarten), two public elementary schools in the same building (one in the morning shift and one in the afternoon shift), a general secondary school and a campus of the Colegio de Bachilleres de Yucatán (COBAY).
