Educate for Rights and Solidarity



« México Central » takes an initiative in favour of unprotected children

09/11/2010: Mexico

On 7 October, under the protection of Our Lady of the Rosary, and within the framework of the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Belisario Domínguez, a personnage of the beginning of the XX century, the Province of « México Central » began the NGO Educate for Rights and Solidarity (EducaDyS). Dominguez worked tirelessly during the Mexican Revolution to make of society a more dignified and just place, especially for the less favoured. The initiative for creating an NGO oriented towards education about Rights appeared in 2006, when we prepared for the 8th Solidarity Workshop. These workshops have been held since 1998 in order to unify the vision and the solidarity efforts in the different works of the Province. The 2006 Workshop had as topic « RE/discover the rights of the person » and as questions: How do we live personal rights in our daily life? How do we make them present in our life? We discovered the need to reinforce the works in the network and to form ourselves for the objective of rights. From that time on, the workshops held have had as a rule to give a face and a heart to the activities of our works from the objective of the rights of children and young people.In addition to that, there are the invitations of the XXI General Chapter, which calls us to undertake actions that will allow us to become experts in the defence of the rights of children and youth, and of the XIV Provincial Chapter, which invites us to create community pastoral processes which promote the defence of their rights (Line of action 4.1).With its focus on excluded, marginalized and vulnerable children and young people of all social levels, the mission of EducaDyS as a Marist NGO is to set in motion educational and social organization processes which stimulate and promote, in union with other national and international bodies:1. The knowledge and practice of the rights of children and youth.2. The increase of the factors of security, respect and exercise of their rights; and the integral development of the most fragile and vulnerable children and youth of our country.3. The transformation of the structures and the mechanisms which impair their present and their future.May our loving Father, our good Mother Mary and Saint Marcellin Champagnat accept, bless and strengthen this new orientation in the service of Mexican children and young people.
