With few economic opportunities and subsistence agriculture as the main occupation, Santa Juana Community as many rural villages are losing their populations as the young people migrate to the bigger towns, causing family disintegration and other related problems.
By maintaining families together, by building a community where education and health services are available we are hoping to discourage emigration. Children that don’t need to leave their families, to attend school or follow on medical services, are healthier and happier kids. Children need loving parental guidance. We are also hoping to create better and more jobs in the Santa Juana Community, that will allow young people to stay and make a healthy income.
