Fundación Casa Alianza México

RATIO is a social enterprise that gives back by supporting the communities where our images were captured. We are proud to announce that this year 15% of the profits from our visual vibes captured in Mexico will go to Casa Alianza Mexico.

Their mission to protect and care for children and adolescents in situations of social abandonment, until they are ready to reintegrate into society in a self-sufficient and functional way, aligns with RATIO’s own mission to support education and human rights.

We partner with non-profits that focus on either education or human rights because no matter where in the community a photograph was taken, education and human rights are fundamental to developing the greater good of our global community.

Since 1988 Casa Alianza Mexico has provided care and protection for boys and girls who have experienced extraordinary trauma, including abuse, neglect, violence, abandonment, addiction to harmful substances, sexual exploitation and human trafficking. The rising tide of violence and instability in Mexico over the recent years has made their work even more urgent as has the ongoing influx of unaccompanied migrant children from Central America into Mexico.

Programs at Casa Alianza Mexico include small homes in distinct locations in Mexico City that house up to 132 children and teens per night and a separate home for up to 30 teen moms and their babies. They also have a fully developed family reintegration and Independent Life Program that prepares youth for life after Casa Alianza.

Thus 15% of each purchase of a RATIO visual vibe taken in Mexico goes to Casa Alianza Mexico to support their residential care facilities, vocational training program, as well as their toll-free 24/7 youth counseling hotline Acercatel and advocacy programs.
