Dreaming Together!

Every child has the right to education, health, and fun. Through holistic and local projects Amextra makes this happen!

Asociación Mexicana de Transformación Rural y Urbana (Amextra)

Our story

Every year Amextra supports hundreds of children and their families in marginalized rural and urban areas in Mexico. This Christmas, help us make 2020 the best year yet!

In Mexico, 7.25% of children ages 5-14 suffer from chronic malnutrition in urban areas, and this figure doubles in rural areas of the country (UNICEF, 2017). Without adequate nutrition in their formative years, children grow up without the necessary energy to play, create, and learn.

At the same time, the Peace Index 2018 confirms that family violence increased by 32% over the past three years in Mexico. According to current data, 63% of children up to 14 years have experienced physical or psychological punishment by family embers, and on average 3.6 children are killed daily.

The figures of economic poverty are equally alarming. Over 20 million children in Mexico live in a family that is not able to afford the basic food basket. This is why at Amextra our programs are holistic, helping families sustainably produce their own food, generate income from diverse sources, have access to quality education, reflect on gender biases, and improve their condition of their homes.  

With your donation, in the first 6 months of 2020 we can: 

  1. Provide Math and Spanish tutoring to 60 kids who do not have access to a public school;
  2. Give 10 Nutrition workshops and sustainable agriculture support in Chiapas, Guerrero and the State of Mexico;
  3. Take 40 girls from the Tultitlán and Lomas de San Isidro communities to an event for science and technology;
  4. Provide lunch at the Mini Olympics event in April 2020 for children and youth living in extreme marginalization;  
  5. Accompany teachers at 6 public schools and 1 church on the implementation of the Forming Values for Non-Violence program. 

This is your chance to show gratitude while supporting the smallest members of our community.  Make a donation today and help 250 children have a brighter future!!
