Trabajo social con niños in Mexico

The largest country of Central America, Mexico is almost a magical and mystical world where nature and civilization are intertwined and where the past and the present coexist in a timeless enchanting way.

The Andes mountains were once peopled by the Mayan and Aztec empires and ancient ruins of their magnificent cities can be found all over this country, coexisting with urban colonial and modern architecture which are gracefully combined  to create original, colourful and classy towns and villages.

Excellent weather, bewildering landscapes, exotic wildlife, delicious cuisine and warm and friendly people are just some of the many attractions that Mexico has to offer those tourists who choose this richly cultured and proud nation.

Merida is the capital city of the Yucatan peninsula region, located in the Mexican Gulf. It is a perfect example of the fascinating blend of nature and civilization and the old and the new.

Blessed with caribbean white sand beaches, ancient archaeological sites, beautiful colonial and modern buildings, a variety of restaurants, theaters and museums, it is also famous for its cathedral and Plaza Grande. Tourists who choose this amazing colonial city will find everything they can expect and much more.

CW works in tight cooperation with local organizations that are based in Merida and the Yucatan region and work in the areas of preservation and promotion of their natural landscapes and cultural inheritage. Projects based in this region include sea turtle protection, tourism, sustainable farming, education and marketing development among others.

Child Care program

This projects take place in a variety of placement located in the city as well as in the surrounding villages, so volunteers may need to travel some distances to reach their working placements. They include family crêches at children’s therapy centers, day care community centers and shelters for teenagers that have suffered some sort of domestic abuse.

Like in most developing countries, in Mexico underprivileged children depend on the support of  non-governmental organizations and charitable institutions, often low funded and short of staff. So volunteers for this children projects are always welcome and highly appreciated.

 

As a volunteer you’ll be required to assist the local staff in a wide range of tasks that include day-to-day household activities, helping to feed and entertain young children, helping with educational and recreational activities, offering personalized attention to vulnerable children and teens, organizing and conducting lessons and practical skills activities such as handcrafts, music, sports and others. Any kind of quality time and stimulating activities devoted to these underprivileged kids will make an invaluable difference in their future prospects and will leave the volunteer’s heart filled with joy.

Working materials are often scarce and any contributions or creative initiative to make up for this lack is always very appreciated.
