About us

* “Mi Valedor” is a slang expression of camaraderie, friendship, solidarity and rapport used commonly in urban Mexico City, similar to “My bro, my homie, my buddy…”

Our Project

We are an organization providing the opportunity for marginalized and homeless people to positively affect their lives, through culture and the creation of healthy support networks.

At Mi Valedor, we focus on helping the most vulnerable sectors of society living in Mexico City; homeless and socially excluded people, groups in need of protection such as immigrants, single mothers, the elderly, and people with disabilities, through a model of self-employment.

Additionally, we complement this vocation by offering the program’s participants workshops to recover the skills that social isolation has taken from them.

With personalized guidance for the magazine sellers (or “valedores”) and the close monitoring of their individual cases, we have managed to build trust and support their ability to help themselves.
