Siemens Gamesa plans to support a diverse range of projects through a contribution of €80,000 to help combat the effects of COVID-19 in Mexico. Among the 12 programs that are part of the SGRE Impact social project worldwide, one of them will be managed by SEDAC. I.A.P., which will help children from 3 to 12 years old in low-income communities gain access to quality education and balanced food packages for the duration of the pandemic. This initiative is committed to eradicating child labor in the brickyard area of Mexico City.
SEDAC started in Santa Bárbara, in the Ixtapaluca State of Mexico over 38 years ago. For almost four decades, they have supported more than 11,000 students preventing girls and boys from being child labor in making and selling bricks. This organization gives them free, high-quality education and balanced food for better learning.
