Niños y Niñas de la Sierra, I. A. P. Mission: To provide first-rate education to children of low-income families who have outstanding learning aptitudes and who live in the Sierra Gorda area of Querétaro state, in México.
Where? The Sierra Gorda is one of the poorest areas in Mexico…
To achieve our objective, in August 2001 we founded the “Instituto de Excelencia Educativa” in Jalpan de Serra, Queretaro, where we currently provide primary school education. Instituto de Excelencia Educativa
Beneficiaries At the Instituto de Excelencia Educativa, we provide first-rate education to a group of 130 boys and girls that study first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade. The school’s project will include from 1 st grade to 9 th grade. The students are selected based on evaluation results, giving preference to those children that demonstrate outstanding aptitudes and who are from low-income families.

The difference… There are a lot of organizations that provide assistance to handicapped children and children with learning disabilities. These institutions receive funds from the government, religious organizations and many caring people. All this is good, because these children need assistance. But there are other types of children with special needs, whom Ninos y Ninas de la Sierra is determined to help: these are the children with outstanding aptitudes. Many of these children have been born in low-income families that cannot even provide basic education. This is a huge waste of potential. Our objective is to identify the children who are capable of taking advantage of our program and provide them with the first-rate education that they deserve. We believe that this is the best investment in society that we could make, not as a charity, but for our own benefit as well as for the benefit of the poor families and communities from where these children come. We are not looking for charity, but for quality.
