Migraciones Nuevo México, USA
Mexican children who migrate to the US have great hopes for a new life, but also suffer discrimination and racism. In SAL's only project in the US, we worked with a group of migrant children, who then created a fictional film (a comedy-fantasy with orcs, no less!) to express their sense of life in a new world.
- 79% of projects changed government policy in a progressive direction.
- 63% of participating youth became leaders in their community.
- 83% of participants became mentors to other kids.
- 38% of participants went on to higher education.
