In partnership with different individuals, schools and museums we bring children from rural communities to San Miguel so they can see the churches, buildings and museums. The children not only visit San Miguel but they learn their history.
The children visit the town and at the end of the day we feed them lunch.
Aprehendiendo Mi Cultura
Bringing culture to the children of San Miguel de Allende
“Learning my culture” or AMC is an integral program in which middle school children are exposed to the diverse museums and institutions in order to gain an understanding and appreciation for their culture. Teachers and students are transported from their communities to the center of San Miguel and tours are then coordinated and guided by highschool students from the local public schools.
The visits are Wednesdays, 2 times a month, from 9 to 12. The tours finish with a breakfast for all participants.

Casa Hogar Santa Julia Don Bosco, A.C.
Casa Hogar Santa Julia is a home for children from precarious family circumstances. The children are brought to the home by police, social services personnel, and family members, and are received into the arms of five Madres or Sisters, who immediately begin raising the girls in pure love. The results are amazing: Children with developmental disabilities are straightened out with sound nutrition. Children with psychological conflicts are righted. The children typically then go on to school, make good grades, and begin planning professional careers. The Madres receive almost nothing from anyone other than individuals and community organizations in San Miguel. It takes only $3 USD a day to meet the basic needs of a child at Santa Julia. Call today for a tour, an opportunity to meet these amazing children and their miracle-making Madres.
