Since its establishment in 2000, Misión México in Tapachula has cared for children of all ages who have been abused, abandoned, neglected, often come from extreme poverty and having had suffered unbelievable acts of violence.
The primary focus of the project is on education, providing children and youth the means to attend school from a Primary to Senior Secondary levels, Trade or Adult Learning Schools and/or even University if they have the abilities required. The project also offers extra classes and cultural activities which will benefit them not only socially, but provide greater opportunities for employment.
The project also offers health, hygiene and dental program to the community with the third major focus being the ’Missionsurf’ project, which involves the building of a surf school, club and restaurant/shop to provide both sustainability as well as employment for the children and locals.
Through these activities Misión México aims to help the children and youth to develop to their full potential, becoming responsible and contributing members of the community.
