I first went to Mexico 5 years ago and worked with an organisation called MAMA AC which works with street kids in Guadalajara.  I spent a great year working at the Casa Grande where they house, feed and educate around 30-40 kids full time.  During the subsequent years i lived in Mexico I always went back to visit the kids and see how they were getting on.  I visited again during my last visit to Guadalajara this January and it was a joy to see how much the kids had grown and what great progress they had made.  Diego, who was taking his school exams the first year I was there is about to graduate from university this year with the support of MAMA.  

After returning I decided I wanted o do something so I decided to run a 10k in Edinburgh with the aim of raising some money for them and sending it over.  I think this is an excellent organisation with a great philosophy and incredible people working for them.  They would appreciate all sizes of donation, no matter how small. If you would like any more info about the project please get in touch, I would love to talk to you about it and the work they do.  Thanks so much!!
