Without childcare, parents can’t work. And without education, children can’t overcome the obstacles of poverty.
That’s why we’ve decided to invest our efforts into the Joyful Heart Daycare (Corazon Allegre) in Tecate, Mexico. The cycle of poverty that afflicts this area can’t be changed until families have a safe environment to nurture their children while parents earn a living.
Joyful Heart Daycare is aptly named; it’s got heart in droves. But the facilities need renovation.Improving safety and enhancing the environment is the goal of our first phase. The second phase will focus on collaborating with Education Project International to increase the quality of education the daycare provides. And, finally, with support from The Kai Project , our third phase involves helping the daycare establish establish sustainable business practices. This will ensure that the progress made will last for generations of smiling children.
Ultimately, the rehabilitation of the Joyful Heart Daycare will enable families in the community to establish dual incomes or for single mothers to work full time, while providing children with a rich educational experience in a safe facility. In this way, our investment in Joyful Heart Daycare is twofold: it provides immediate relief for the financially-needy AND paves the way for the next generation to progress from the poverty of their childhoods.
