Sarahuaro’s goals are simple: support and empower mothers and you will automatically change the lives of their children. Feed children in school and they will do better in school.
It’s a basic equation that ultimately equals an elevation of the entire community – everyone will benefit from the higher quality of life, better education, improved health, and financial stability. Improve now and change generations to come!
Raising strong children, one mother at a time.
Families – often led by single women – live in extreme poverty, teen pregnancy numbers top worldwide rankings, women do not finish high school or learn job skills, and violence against women and children ranks among the highest anywhere. Their children are undernourished and often go hungry.
Since women are the main caretakers in the traditional Mexican family, changing a woman’s self-image and knowledge base will break the cycle of these culturally-ingrained patterns.
What began as simple classes in life skills and artisanal work grew into a life-changing program for women impacted by poverty.
Sarahuaro signifies friendship and community. The saguaro cactus is an iconic feature of the Baja landscape, where the desert meets the sea. A cactus is able to support life and prosper in the midst of a challenging environment, much like the women who participate in Sarahuaro’s programs.
The 2013 addition of La Cocina De Los Niños (The Children’s Kitchen) program expanded our reach by feeding kids while they are in school. Hungry kids simply don’t do well in school.
