About the event
Mexico has one of the lowest rates of school enrollment among 15 to 19-year-olds, possibly because poverty drives them to find jobs rather than complete their education. Thousands of students cross the U.S.-Mexico border every day to gain a U.S education and about 94 percent of the children at the school are living in poverty, and nearly all 570 students are considered English-language learners — classifications that entitle the school to extra federal dollars but create intense challenges in the classroom. We will donate all of our school supplies raised to help these students in need.
