In Mexico, it's estimated that are over a million orphaned minors. Sadly, a lot of them live on the streets, where they experience hunger every day, as well as cold weather (or hot, depending on the season). They are also in danger of being victims of organized crime or, worse, being recruited against their will to become part of those gangs.
That is why different nonprofit associations have arisen to try to fix the problem. In Oaxaca, for example, there is one shelter that serves as a foster home and school for homeless Oaxaca children.
It is called Procasahogar del Niño A.C. and it is located in Oaxaca City. It is defined as a “Casa Hogar”, which translates as a house-home. They are dedicated to caring for kids in a state of vulnerability by not only giving them a place to eat and sleep, but also teaching them all kinds of things.
One of the most admirable things about Procasahogar del Niño in Oaxaca is that they really care about the children's wellbeing and ability to be happy, social, smart, and sensitive. That is why, besides their normal mandatory classes, they also organize activities and events such as:
Like any other association, charity, or nonprofit, Procasahogar del Niño in Oaxaca functions thanks to donations, whether it is monetary or in kind. So they are always looking to partner with different local businesses or brands to start alliances and raise more money.
Here at Azul Mejicano we pride ourselves on the social impact our brand has. We not only sell Oaxacan handmade bags and accessories, but we help the local community in every way we can. So we partnered with Procasahogar del Niño because we want the Oaxaca children to have blankets for them to face adversity and shoes to run towards their dreams.
And your purchase helps us achieve that goal. A percentage of your receipt supports the cause, but we wanted to go a step further and enable the donations tool at checkout. This way, you can donate a specific amount to the 20 children that live in this home.
The money you donate, through your purchase or donation, will be destined for blankets and shoes. Help Procasahogar del Niño, so teachers can continue teaching them skills to grow and have a better quality of life. Help these children chase their dreams!
