The word Necahual comes from the Nahuatl indigenous language of Central Mexico and means “left behind, survivor”. As a non for profit organization the foundation aims to help children in need with new housing, education, recreations, social skills, nutrition, and self sufficiency. Our goal is to give meaning to the word Necahual by providing seed funds for social change and the necessary tools for these children to succeed in every day life!
The foundation has programs for attention, prevention, and integration. For attention, we give shelter and tutoring to children that have been neglected and/or abused. We provide domestic violence prevention programs, as well as after-school programs so that children have social interaction after school, rather than going home alone. We work with integration from two different aspects: one, by providing job training and college tuition, to help them better acclimate to society, and the second is that we help the children adapt to new cultures, without losing their own.
Necahual’s committee members come from all walks of life, each with their own gifts and talents to help the foundation succeed in helping children in need.
Necahual’s accountant is also a member of the committee. She visits frequently, checks receipts, invoices, and most importantly speaks with the children, all in an effort to make sure that the money donated is spent on what it was meant for.
We thank you for your consideration. It is our hope that you will join us in keeping true to the meaning of the word Necahual and help those who were left behind and provide them with the skills to survive.
