What We Do

our mission

The mission of Fundación Sarahuaro is to support women through educational activities, in order to develop skills that enable them to improve themselves, their families, and their community.

We achieve this mission primarily by offering classes and workshops at our community centers. These courses are typically 3 months long, and cover a range of topics including basic life skills, language and literacy, and job training.

What we do simplified:

  • We teach women skills to grow from,
  • We provide educational daycare while the moms learn,
  • We feed elementary school aged children 300+ meals every school day,
  • We educate over 100 moms on nutrition and healthy eating.

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.

After over a decade of working in this community, we have implemented clear procedures for organizing the activities for women as well as the children who accompany them to CDM. Children attend classes and activities according to their age while their mothers are in session. Our team is enriched by teachers, psychologists, and volunteers who support the daily operations of the center.

La Cocina De Los Niños

La Cocina De Los Niños (Children’s Kitchen) is based in Leonardo Gastelum, a colonia just a few miles outside of Cabo San Lucas. The program provides healthy meals to well over 200 kids each day during the school year. It is operated through the generous support of more than 100 volunteer moms, many of whom are active in Sarahuaro’s Women’s Development Center (Centros De Desarrollo Para Mujeres CDM) program.

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.
