Los Amigos de Zippy in Mexico
• Schools and kindergartens this year 20
• Children this year 1,902
• Total children since launch 28,931
Our first Mexican partner was Lazos, an agency that works with children and young people, particularly from disadvantaged backgrounds. It aims to improve the quality of children’s education, promote values in education and prevent truancy.
Los Amigos de Zippy started in eight schools in October 2010, and the first year tested the programme in Mexico State and Federal District and six other states – Baja California, Guanajuato, Jalisco, Nuevo Léon, Puebla and Yucatán.
Lazos has now been joined by Fundacion Nemi, which is already expanding the programme into many more schools.
Nemi was founded in 1996, and works to provide opportunities for greater participation and development of underprivileged children and young people. Their educational and social campaigns frequently make use of creative methods such as drama, video and other activities to transmit their message.
Los Amigos de Zippy in Mexico is supported by HSBC.
