Keep 55 Children out of Nightclubs in Oaxaca, Mexico
Expand Casa Hogar in Austin, TX by Sophia Zaia
For 10 years Casa Hogar Hijos de la Luna, Oaxaca, MX, has given a safe home to children of single mothers who work at night. Some are sex workers. Now Casa Hogar finds themselves with 55 children in a 3 bedroom space. This project is raising funds so that Casa Hogar can buy the adjoining land, build a new house and continue to serve these kids. The cause is urgent. Without more space the older kids must return home -sometimes brothels or strip clubs, no place for an adolescent to grow up!
We serve children from infancy to 15 years of age whose working mothers cannot provide them with a safe and healthy place to grow up. En español: http://bit.ly/RrQ5M5
We have raised over $26,000 US so far. Our goal is to raise the $50,000 US or more which will be needed to purchase the land and build the new house.
