What we do
We support Vida 180 A.C to rescue, restore, and equip children: to raise a generation of leaders.
The Santa Lucía project
The education model
Arithmetics : the practical application of mathematics is the best way to help the children to develop their brain and logic intelligence. The specialized program teaches this skill in a fun but impactful way. Spanish language : we know that communication is the cornerstone of any society. Vida 180 A.C. is committed to this area, knowing that it is especially important for our children of Tarahumara (Rarámuri) ethnicity to be able to integrate seamlessly into the general society. Optimal Spanish language development is supported by the Libros Águila method. English language : for more than a century, English has been the universal language in terms of business and academia. The goal is that every child at Vida 180 A.C. becomes fluent in this language, as a tool for a suc cessful future. Computer science : the use and application of new technology is defining in an era of fast advancement and self-learning through the internet. The children’s education encompasses computer lessons, giving them ac cess to hardware and software to further develop this skillset.
The self-sustainability program
Farmers from all over the state have been willing and overjoyed to join, as they are giving something that is real and relevant to them. Giving of one’s specific talent or occupation is a way to make the gift more meaningful. These investors and donors are a significant part of this project, as they sustain Vida 180 and allow us to continue on our grand mission.
Our goal is to grow this self-sustainability program so that 100% of the operating funds for the current home can come from this system. This way donations can be directed towards expansion and new children can be rescued.
