We support reputable Mexican organizations that offer development programs to kids from poor families and indigenous communities.

Your contributions are used effectively

It's essential that your contributions are used for the purpose intended.  We work only with legally established nonprofit organizations in Mexico that operate with transparency and honesty.

We help children, adolescents, and young adults in Mexico get an education and lead productive lives in their own country.

"For me, El Puente is a great help in all ways to be able to manage and develop my life.  The institution and everyone involved provides me the help and confidence and tools for my life and to achieve my goals.  It’s a light for me on my path and, as it names says, a bridge for my dreams.  And it’s taught me that you can achieve all you want, but you have to work hard because if you don’t help yourself, how can others help you?"



"I will support Gaby to receive the highest education possible for her abilities and motivation.  I e-mail her in Spanish regularly and tell her that she can choose whatever profession she would like -- hairdresser, guide, cook -- whatever.  My appreciation to El Puente is the stability that they give to her life.  I have never seen her laugh or smile before she came to El Puente.  It is a gift to see her so happy ."
