In Mexico, the gap between rich and poor is significant. While the country’s economic growth can be seen in Merida’s well-kept downtown, serious poverty exists. Especially for vulnerable groups like children and the elderly. Volunteers have the opportunity to work in a food bank that is critical to feeding the needy. They bring energy and skills, as well as new perspectives.

Healthcare in Mexico for the poorest is significantly hard to overcome. Access to qualified doctors in public hospitals is difficult, and its not uncommon for patients, even those with life-threatening conditions, to have long waiting times before healthcare is provided. Volunteers bring valuable experience and skills, as well as outside perspectives to share with the local medical professionals.
Les tortues marines et les crocodiles sont deux classes d’animaux menacées pour lesquels nos volontaires s’engagent au Mexique. En parallèle, nous menons des études de biodiversité sur une partie du littoral mexicain qui grâce au travail de nos volontaires a été reconnu comme site d'importance internationale. Rejoignez nos équipes qui agissent activement sur ces différents projets !
For Mexico’s most vulnerable, especially people with disabilities, life remains a challenge. A lack of oversight and funding means many poor children and people with disabilities do not receive adequate care. Abuse and neglect are all too common in public centers, and while private institutions like religious organizations and NGOs help fill the need gap, they need more support.
One of the most severe problems facing Merida’s poorest is shoddy infrastructure. From run-down schools and hospitals to community centers that have not been remodeled in generations, the need for better facilities is significant. Volunteers bring energy and manpower to help beautify and restore buildings serving Merida’s poor. They live in Merida and volunteer in the city and surrounding areas.
