Meaningful Giving. Inspired Change: Education in Mexico
The Baja California peninsula and Sea of Cortez region face many educational challenges. Lack of investment in public schools. High dropout rates. Limited after-school programs. Delinquency, drug use and gang involvement. A lack of trained bilingual teachers to prepare students for jobs in our bi-national region.
ICF helps address educational issues that impact both sides of the border by supporting philanthropic education organizations in Mexico.
By the numbers, in 2015 & 2016:

In 2016, ICF granted $4,700,000 to 25 education programs in Mexico.
Impacts from the $700,000 granted in 2015 include;

Provided 914 students with scholarships

Helped 304 children participate in Early Childhood Education programs

Helped 372 students participate in after-school programs such as art, music, and sports

Supported library services and activities for 7,900 children

Putting Your Dollars to Work: Special initiatives
Education Forum: Investing in Formal and Informal Education in Mexico:
In November 2015, ICF convened our education program grantees in Los Cabos, BCS to assess our collective progress and impact, learn from thought leaders in the education field in Mexico, and set a course for future philanthropy and direct services in this field. The forum will serve as an opportunity for participants to deepen their understanding of the current education landscape in Mexico, gain knowledge to improve and sustain their current education programs, and build relationships for future collaboration.
