Ciudad Juarez is located directly across from El Paso Texas and has been a border town for as long as it has existed. As tensions grow larger on both sides of the border migrants and children find themselves lost in the system waiting to seek asylum. New laws by the US Government now require migrants to wait out their asylum cases in Mexico which is currently creating a high influx of migrants who find themselves in limbo waiting in shelters for weeks and months before their case is heard by the US Government.
During those long periods of time migrant children do not have access to education due to their lack of legal status. Even citizens from Mexico who have traveled to border towns to seek asylum have trouble enrolling their children in school.What is the Yes We Can Mobile Schools Bus?
The Yes We Can Mobile Schools Bus is the first fully bilingual school for migrant children and was created by the organization: Yes We Can World Foundation. Our mission is to provide quality education for children regardless of their location, legal status, or economic background. Every child is welcomed on board the Schools On Wheels Bus with no questions asked and no limitations to their learning.
We created the Yes We Can Mobile Schools Bus because it is a mobile classroom that allows us to provide ACCESS to education for migrant children in transit. We are able to bring the classroom to the children in and provide a school program for them. Creating a second bus that can travel to Juarez will allow us to reach the children in that area who are currently unable to attend school.
Kids engage in classroom activities aboard the Yes We Can Mobile School Bus in Tijuana, Mexico. How will we do this?
We will purchase a coach bus, remove all of the parts we don't need, purchase all of the building materials, get a build crew on board, purchase all of the desks, chairs, all school related furniture, RV air conditioner units, additional tents for teen classes, tables, chairs, and everything we need to successfully run our program. How long will it take?
With your help we will transform a coach bus into a Yes We Can Mobile School Bus in 1 month! Yes just 30 days! That is how committed we are and have a team that is ready to go as soon as we raise the money to make it happen.

With your help we can do this and be a positive solution to a complicated problem. We need your support to help raise the funds to complete the next Yes We Can Mobile School Bus and hit the road to provide more children with a safe space to learn, to play and to feel loved.
Thank you for your kindness and support,
