Project Details

Refuge providing love, life and hope for children of all ages, who have been abused, neglected, orphaned or abandoned. Education, art, sport and surfing are all provided

Misión México Foundation is situated in Tapachula, Mexico, and is a registered charity in Mexico and in the UK. 

Misión México Foundation provides a loving, secure home for the children and youth in our care who have come from vulnerable situations and backgrounds. We currently have 19 children and youth living at Misión Mexico Home, and we provide services to additional youth through our other community programs: Youth Transition Program, Proyecto Faro (The Lighthouse Project), and Misión Surf. 

Since our organization was established in 2001, Misión México has helped transform the lives of more than 250 children, giving them a much-deserved second chance at life. The refuge is set up and operated to provide a family home environment, where the children feel loved and secure. 

The children attend school, with additional support from our onsite Education Team. They also learn to swim and surf - they are the only surfers in Tapachula! - and cherish their time at the beach and in the waves, where they continue to build their confidence and character.

We're a passionate group of people with a team of staff and volunteers from all over the world. We welcome volunteers year round to bring skills, talents, passion and love with them to share with our kids. 

All our volunteers must be at least 21 years of age at the start of their time with us, commit to at least two consecutive months, and follow our Covid-19 clearance requirements and policy.
