OAXACA STREETCHILDREN GRASSROOTS
"You change the world when you educate a child!"
Oaxaca Streetchildren Grassroots is a bi-national non-profit organization devoted to improving the lives of marginalized youth of diverse backgrounds in Oaxaca City, Mexico by giving them access to an education. With boards in Mexico and the United States and a broad international base of financial donors and volunteers, we provide nutritious meals, medical care, public school tuition and extracurricular academic support to over 600 Oaxacan children. Our historic center in Oaxaca City serves as a place of extracurricular learning for the children we serve, as well as a site of inter-cultural exchange for the many international students and volunteers who contribute to our grassroots mission. We believe that every child has a right to an education and we support the rights of Indigenous youth to an education that is culturally appropriate.
