We support reputable Mexican organizations that offer development programs to kids from poor families and indigenous communities.
It's essential that your contributions are used for the purpose intended. We work only with legally established nonprofit organizations in Mexico that operate with transparency and honesty.
We help children, adolescents, and young adults in Mexico get an education and lead productive lives in their own country.
Currently I’m enrolled in the fifth semester in Azteca Plantel 8 in Querétaro. I had some difficulties adapting my life to the regulated life of the organization, as my life before joining El Puente comprised only studying and working late hours in my community excavating ashlar stone from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. But now I’m really glad to be a part of El Puente. During the past two years, I learned to enjoy every aspect (spiritual, academic and social), and I feel very comfortable living with my colleagues.
“For me, being in El Puente means having the chance to continue my studies. My family doesn't have the resources necessary to pay for both my studies and those of my siblings, given that there are seven of us of school age. That's why El Puente is my only option to achieve my dreams of studying, to become a professional, to aspire to have a better future, and to help my family. I've never been a person who gives up. I like to study and I want to learn at least two languages. I know I won't disappoint myself or the people that believe in and trust me."
