WHO WE ARE
Helping the Most Vulnerable Populations Since 1954
67 Years of Caring for Children
An additional 140 students attend the NPH vocational high school in Cuernavaca.
Even farther north, in Matamoros, Mexico, reside more of our extended family. Cuidad de Los Niños, or City of the Children. This home received the first children in 2009 and is now home to 40 children, the majority under age 16. When youths are ready for high school, they move to our home in Cuernavaca.
Extracurricular activities are a valuable part of the pequeños’ days. Aside from an active sports program, NPH Mexico has a proud tradition of its young people’s talent as musicians, folk dancers and Tae Kwon Do athletes. At least once a year, the dance and music troupe travel abroad to the USA, performing their own Ballet Folklórico to raise funds to help support their family.
In 2011, the home began investigating and accepting children from the war-torn region of Juárez, where many children are abandoned while their parents seek a better life across the border. As of today, 28 children have entered the home and an additional 15 plan to arrive within the year 2014.
NPH Mexico is led by Rafael Bermudez, along with over 240 dedicated staff.
“For me, NPH is a place where once you are here you can perceive a sense of internal security in a warm environment because you know that all your little brothers are together and not separated from different relatives, where you can realize your dreams with the support of many people. wonderful”
– Rafael “Rafa” Bermudez, National Director, Hermano mayor
