Margarita Maza De Juarez School
Margarita Maza de Juarez School floods during rainy season each year in Tabasco, Mexico with waters up to 1.8 meters high. Aside from devastating structural effects, the flooding also interrupts supplies of power and potable water. The surrounding community donated a plot of land for the construction of the new school that is safe and accessible to children even during rainy season.    Read More

Aside from devastating structural effects, the flooding also interrupts supplies of power and potable water. The surrounding community donated a plot of land for the construction of the new school that is safe and accessible to children even during rainy season. Happy Hearts Fund and SURA have rebuilt the school that includes classrooms, a courtyard, an administrative area, recreational spaces, and a state of the art computer lab. The new school allows over 50 students, ages 6-12, the opportunity for a consistent, reliable, and safe education, free from the hazards and interruptions of floods. Construction was completed in November 2011.    Close
 
16 de Septiembre School
During a post-disaster survey, SURA found the 16 de Septiembre School in Veracruz, Mexico in desperate need of support. The school was affected by continuous flooding that occurred every rainy season and forced students to miss weeks of classes, thus precluding them from a proper education path. More so, the sanitation conditions of the 16 de Septiembre School got even worse after each flooding because of a nearby chicken farm which attracted flies.    Read More
During a post-disaster survey, SURA found the 16 de Septiembre School in Veracruz, Mexico in desperate need of support. The school was affected by continuous flooding that occurred every rainy season and forced students to miss weeks of classes, thus precluding them from a proper education path. More so, the sanitation conditions of the 16 de Septiembre School got even worse after each flooding because of a nearby chicken farm which attracted flies. These flies carried potential diseases and were putting the health of the children in danger. Because of the extreme need for relocation, HHF and SURA decided to fulfill the community's dream and rebuild the school. Thanks to the incredible effort of the school's director, new land was donated and the reconstruction started in the Fall of 2011. Completion was achieved in August 2012 and is now attended by over 230 students.    Close
 
Jose’ Vasconcelos Telesecondary
The Jose’ Vasconcelos Telesecondary School is located in one of the poorest areas in the Central Mexico region, just outside of Mexico City. It is affected by recurring annual flooding which cause students to miss countless days of school each year. The school offers hope and extracurricular alternatives for the students. HHF and Grupo Sura visited the school in January 2013 and decided to support its relocation and reconstruction. In October 2013, a new disaster resistant facility was inaugurated and over 90 students now attend the school.
