Nursery School in Mexico

In Mexico - where since 2000 the number of pregnancies among girls aged 12 to 19 years is increasing -young people abandoning their studies due to maternity is becoming a serious problem. The figures hover around 40 percent for the middle-upper studies and around 20 for the upper ones. According to the National Research on abandonment, shame and prejudice are the causes that lead to the withdrawal of adolescent girls. Scholarships available for young mothers are insufficient. For this reason, the students of the Faculty of Law of the University Juarez (Durango State) have opened a unique nursery. Created by students for students, with the support of the government and universities, it has costs that depend on the ability of the individual. Open from 7 to 20 it houses 160 children. But the number of enquiries are many more.
