Escalando Fronteras is a non-profit group that uses rock climbing and education to empower and build the skills of at-risk youth in underdeveloped areas of Monterrey, Mexico in order to give them the tools to pursue promising and positive lives. We ran an in-depth feature about the group in 2017. Now, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they are extending their support outside of climbing to raise money for those in need. You can donate here.

The organization writes:

“Escalando Fronteras is a proactive at-risk youth climbing program feeding families who live day-to-day and have lost sources of income as street sellers, or low-skill laborers. Some mothers are struggling to support four generations: “Who do I sell to? How do I make it work?”

“Monterrey, Mexico has one of the largest wealth gaps of Latin America, with 60% of unregistered laborers lacking health insurance and a 47% high school teen drop-out rate related to poverty, gang violence and teen pregnancy.

“Donate $1 or more to help us reach our goal of $2,000, which will principally supply impacted families in the poverty polygon of Lomas Modelo with bags of rice, beans and lentil, as well as support EF’s other COVID-specific actions.”
