About Us

The state of Oaxaca, Mexico, is a fascinating tapestry of indigenous cultures, but Oaxaca remains one of Mexico's poorest states. Many of its inhabitants live in dire poverty and survival often depends on the youngest members of the family selling trinkets to tourists on the street. For the poorest of Oaxaca's children, completing an education is a difficult dream to attain.

How We Help

  • We are a need-based, comprehensive program for children and young adults that gets them off the street and provides the opportunity to attend school and gain the skills necessary to be successful and to contribute to society.
  • We have 712 students enrolled in our program from elementary through high school. An additional 104 are enrolled in technical, university and graduate school programs.
  • The program at our center provides social services, school uniforms, school inscription fees, tuition, school supplies, a meals program, tutoring, a computer lab, library, some medical and dental services, and more.

All this is made possible by the generosity of our donors and sponsors

Our Team

  • In the United States, our volunteer board is a dedicated team focused on supporting and providing funding to Centro de Esperanza Infantil - our Center in Oaxaca - allowing it to serve as many children as possible.
  • In Oaxaca, our small staff is supported by volunteers from around the world. Together they operate our center that provides continual services to the more than 690 children we serve.

We Are a Wise Investment

At Oaxaca Streetchildren Grassroots, we are focused on accountability and transparency. Our administrative costs are extraordinarily low and our strong commitment to our mission is reflected in our Platinum status with Guidestar. Donation Information
