BI Filler Photo-01Every year, groups of Mexican migrants in the US pool their resources to sponsor thousands of development projects in their Mexican hometowns. Unfortunately, the positive impact that these projects have on towns in Mexico has been limited. Due to the complexities involved in designing, fundraising and overseeing implementation, many locally based projects often fail. This Fund will help to change that by empowering migrants in multiple ways. By allowing migrants to leverage their collective remittances, they will be able to transform their migrant expelling communities in Mexico into ones that offer their citizens access to education, health, economic opportunities, gender equality and a sustainable environment.
