Guest Blog: Promotora Mexicana De Valores Deportivos AC

28th May 2015

We are excited to share with you our first guest blog from “Hero Award” Winner Promotora Mexicana De Valores Deportivos AC.

For two and a half years, we began to write the history of a project, of a dream, a better way of life in the city of Tampico, State of Tamaulipas, in México, to support children and youth through sport, education, health and values.

Trying to deal with the social and violence problems that we currently live, we found that the way is to promote a opportunity of life for these children and youth, preventing them put aside the sports practice, and at the same time we support education, nutrition and values.

In two and a half years, our project and our foundation has been supporting in sports 485 children and youth of scarce resources in local, state, national, and international sports competitions.

Thanks to the support and link with international companies, we have obtained donations that has benefited more than 70000 children and youth in the State of Tamaulipas, and more than 20000 in the Mexican Republic.

Currently we designed the project “Support with medical supplies” with the purpose of benefit more than 30000 citizens of scarce resources, affected by the fighting of organized crime in the 25 municipalities with the highest index of violence in the State of Tamaulipas, Mexico.

With the support of 42 civil associations, which are helping with great enthusiasm in the distribution of medical equipment in their municipalities, this project has the opportunity to achieve the purpose of reaching them.

Currently, we have contact with other organizations in the States of Jalisco, Guerrero, and Michoacan, to develop in the same way the project in these States of our country, Mexico, and benefit more citizens affected by fighting of organized crime, supply them with the medical equipment they need to have a better quality of life.

In early 2015, thanks to PeaceJam foundation, we were invited to participate in the program “One Billion Acts of Peace” global movement in which participate, among others, the following companies: Google, Wells Fargo, Hill + Knowlton Strategies, Chadbourne & Parke and 13 Nobel Peace Prize Laureates.

“One Billion Acts of Peace Campaign” is an international global citizens’ movement designed to tackle the most important problems facing our planet.

Proudly, our Foundation was nominated as one of the best projects for the solution of social problems, and best news, we were notified on May 21 to be the winners of the international “Hero Award” in the category “Best up and coming peacemaker”, awarded by the same program.

What started as a dream, it is now a reality, in a very short time it has developed a successful project, with very small budget, but with a lot of commitment, desire and passion, benefiting thousands of children, youth and adults of scarce resources in Mexico.

All this would not have been achieved without the donations and international support of “One World Futbol Project” and “911 Fund” in the United States of North America, who definitely are part of the success of our project.

Your confidence has been valuable in this process of development of our foundation.
