Migration is a global phenomenon resulting from a voluntary action or from events such as hunger, unemployment, war, violence, and environmental factors, among others. It can be forced, voluntary, temporary and/ or permanent, etc. In each of these situations, migrant children are vulnerable to situations that violate their rights, such as: detention, exposure to organized crime or human traffickers, violence and discrimination, hunger and cold, and lack of access to health services.
     According to UNICEF, at the end of 2021, there were more than 36 million children displaced from their homes due to situations of conflict and violence. This is the highest registered figure since the Second World War.
     In Mexico, the number of migrant children has increased annually. This was aggravated by the pandemic, so that by 2021, there were 9 times more migrant children, 50% of which were unaccompanied.

We develop high social impact activities that support vulnerable migrant populations. Through interaction with art, workshops, and contests, we highlight and stimulate reflection around this phenomenon.

We work with the migrant population, with a focus on vulnerable children and adolescents.

We implement workshops, contests, and talks with the migrant community, helping them to reconnect with their culture and roots, and to freely express their hopes, needs, emotions, etc.

The Jorge Marin Foundation is committed to the idea that art and culture are transformational elements that contribute to guaranteeing the right to learn, to creativity, to free expression, and to developing progressive capacities. Art not only serves the purpose of aesthetic enjoyment, but is also an opportunity for expression and reflection. By exposing the issue of migration, we help to break down barriers that lead to prejudice and discrimination.

Our work is undertaken in both Mexico and abroad.
