empowering women

Centros De Desarrollo Para Mujeres (CDM)
Sarahuaro’s Center for the Development of Women (CDM) offers a variety of educational opportunities for women from Los Cabos most impoverished colonias. Courses and training are typically organized into 3-month modules with subjects including; basic life skills, language, literacy, and job training.

The cost of educating ONE woman is $70 US per month, $210 per 3 month session, $630 per year.
This includes all workbooks, educational supplies, crafting materials, and day care for her children.

La Cocina De Los Niños

Providing healthy meals to children helps them learn, grow and play.

Our kitchen introduces new ways of choosing food and reduces the risk of diabetes and other diet related health issues common in poverty-stricken communities.

La Cocina De Los Niños is based in Leonardo Gastelum, a colonia just a few miles outside of Cabo San Lucas. The program provides healthy meals to well over 245 kids each day during the school year.

La Cocina arose from a concern voiced by Sarahuaro women around lack of healthy food for their families. Beyond making critical meals for students, La Cocina provides nutrition and cooking training that the mothers can bring to their families and homes.

The cost of feeding ONE child is $15 US per month, $150 US per school year.

providing daycare

CDM Child Minding

More than ‘just’ child care.

While the mom’s are learning, their children are divided by age group and led in age-appropriate activities. The elementary school-aged children practice reading, writing, mathematics, play games, and create art projects, while the babies are cuddled or nap. All children are fed a nutritious meal before they morning is over.

These children are out of school in the morning because their formal session doesn’t begin until the afternoon.
