DELAMANO por el mundo visited different communities in Tijuana. Our mission is to improve the lives of poor children through the arts.

“Pedacito de Cielo”, lead by Mother Veronica. Their mission is to help to improve the children lives trough  art workshops.  Children stay safe and protected when they visit “Pedacito de Cielo” especially those children living in poverty and facing risk factors associated with drug and alcohol abuse.

We work with volunteers who have always used art to express themselves taking their passion to help others discover their love for art. Our creative courses help the children to improve their creativity by doing creative painting, music, circus, storytelling, theatre, and many more…

 

DELAMANO provides inclusive programs and specialised programs for young people who are facing challenges such as poor educational experiences, family breakdown, mental health issues, substance abuse and offending behaviours.

Cañón Las Palmas

This is a rural school located in the valleys outside Tijuana, Mexico with more than 120 students. While education is technically free in Mexico, local communities must construct and outfit school buildings and provide school supplies. Unfortunately, many small villages lack the resources to make this feasible.  As a result many children are attending schools that are little more than shacks, lacking in the most basic school supplies. Despite the hard work and eagerness of the students, it’s hard to do much learning under these circumstances. Teachers in these schools are young. In return for a scholarship to complete their university education student teachers have the opportunity to teach for two or more years in an underserved rural school.

Some of those communities lack the resources necessary to incorporate the arts into the school curriculum for that reason DELAMANO por el mundo brought there different kind of art workshops.

DELAMANO believe that by sharing work in intimate groups, students can learn to develop and feel secure in their academic endeavors. Such work also helps individuals become self-confident and listen respectfully to others. We teach participants how to use their natural surroundings to generate ideas.

What our workshops participants all have in common is an interest in the creative process, a spirit of curiosity, and the desire to explore and harness the power of their imaginations.
