Our story

Summary of the campaign:

CONCAUSA is a movement that seeks teens between 14 and 17 years old with a sustainable development project aligned with the UN2030 Agenda that solves a direct problem with its community. The 10 most innovative projects in Mexico will attend a local youth summit of 5 days where we will give tools to enhance their projects as well as boost their personal and collective skills. We seek that young Mexicans willing to generate change, exchange and bond by creating a coordinated youth network. With your donation we will be able to empower 30 teens of the country so they understand that their actions have impact in the Mexican society.

How will we put your donations in action?

$ 125 USD allows us to pay the transportation by plane of 1 young volunteer

$ 100 USD allows us to feed 1 young volunteer for 5 days

$ 30 USD allows us to host 1 young volunteer for 3 days

$ 15 USD allows us to pay for round transportation by bus of a young volunteer

$ 8 USD allows us to pay for a shirt and thermos for 1 young volunteer

$ 2.5 USD allows us to give 1 meal to 1 young volunteer

Why it matters:

The present world is in crisis; the population is constantly exposed to different social problems: climate change, lack of water and food, discrimination and poverty, are problems that are configured as a reality that directly or indirectly affect all humanity. 43.6% of the Mexican population lives in poverty, while extreme poverty affects 7.6%, equivalent to 9.4 million Mexicans. 26% of the Mexican population lacks access to basic services in their houses. In the poorest municipalities of the country, 98% of its population speaks an indigenous language. Finally, it should be noted that in Mexico one third of the total population of the country., 40 million people, are under 18 years of age. Of these, slightly more than half (53.9%) were in poverty in 2014. This means that 1 out of every 2 children and teens in Mexico is poor. That is why CONCAUSA was born.

We are at a time where it is key to work with young people because they are one of the greatest generations in history. According to Ban-Ki Moon, “We can be the first generation to end global poverty and the last generation to prevent the worst consequences of global warming before it is too late” We also believe that fostering the development of skills and capabilities promotes the participation and youth empowerment preventing educational lag and school dropout.

Our goal this year is that 10 teams with innovative ideas, attend a national summit where we will give them the necessary tools to enhance their projects. In addition, we will be working on skills and knowledge that contribute to their personal and collective development.

With your donation we seek to create a youth network that manages to solve the challenges of Mexico and the continent by promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), a set of global objectives to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure the prosperity of all.

Your donation allows us to empower and give voice to teens recognizing their participatory role in our Mexican society. Be part of CONCAUSA!

Potential challenges:

We firmly believe that teens deserve to be heard and that is why we believe CONCAUSA is the initiative that can make them understand the impact of their actions and decisions in Mexico today. We need the support of all the people who are interested. If you think you can help in another way, do not hesitate to contact us at avillarreal@americasolidaria.org
