Hotel con Corazón invests its profits in education. We focus in particular on making the transition from secondary to high school more accessible to students from marginalized areas in and around Oaxaca City. Research reveals that only 35% of Oaxaca’s youth is finishing secondary school, basically for economic reasons. These kids don’t have the money to continue school, they need to provide income for the family, or education is not recognized as useful either by them or their parents.
Together with local NGOs specialized in education we will set up a program that addresses the different aspects of this problem. Think of awarding scholarships, developing motivation programs for children and parents, offering tutoring and other ways to help kids prepare for a more extended school career.
At this moment we are still in the preparatory phase of our education project. As soon as we have more news, we will update this page.
