Mexico is a country with abundant natural resources, citizens that are full of life and vitality, a rich gastronomical selection, and some of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the world.
Sadly, Mexico is also plagued with issues such as poverty, high crime rate, high teen pregnancy rate, and high unemployment rate.
40% of Mexicans do not progress past elementary school.
Only 12% of Mexicans receive a degree from a university.
And 25% of 15-29 year olds are neither in school nor working.
For these reasons, many people believe that their only option is to turn to organized crime, prostitution, or other types of illegal activities to make a living for themselves and their family.
We at Hands and Feet Ministries believe that God has called us to work with the Mexican people and make a difference in this nation by providing education, spiritual care, college opportunities, and job opportunities for those who might otherwise have very limited options.
