Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. In 2001, “Colegio Madre Teresa” was established in a remote town in the Jalapa mountain region. The objective was to offer a different system of education to the poorest of the poor, who generally start working at a very tender age. The concept was to introduce Christian values marked by good opportunities in sports and science. It was not an easy task. The first year we had just 30 kids in 3 classrooms. But the idea developed quickly and the number reached over 300 in the following years. Today it is administered by a religious female congregation. They always need our support.
