Domestic violence sends hundreds of girls and teens into the street, placing them in a situation of vulnerability that makes it hard for them to study or even develop a healthy personality.
Fundación Casa de las Mercedes I.A.P. provides a place where hundreds of girls have found a safe place to grow up and go back to school, where we face difficulties with a brave face, knowing that we're stronger together.
It is of utmost importance to us at Casa de Las Mercedes that children grow up with a life free of violence, quality health services, decent education, and a safe environment.
Hence for our social aims we find the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) adopted by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to be applicable.
It is the first international document to incorporate a range of human, civil, cultural, economic, political, and social rights inherent to persons under the age of 18, and to which we have aligned in order to fulfill our mission.
During 365 days a year, we enthusiastically strive to build a network of support and solidarity around our girls and adolescents.
Being a Partner for Change can have a different meaning and application to each of us depending on our role, our location, our clients, our relationships. But no matter where you are or who you are, you can be a Partner for Change. Click here to get started today.
