About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

The Mexican education system is riddled with passivity, boredom, and ineffective teaching. What’s more, the system's rigidity influences broader societal attitudes - malaise replaces physical activity, apathy supplants civic participation. Though widespread, this dual tragedy most adversely affects indigenous populations, whose communities fall further behind, increasingly marginalized, apathetic, and sedentary in their daily lives.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

By using active learning to foster young changemakers, Deport-es para Compartir (DpC) inspires engaged citizens from childhood. With an interactive curriculum centered on the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals, the program disseminates knowledge of major global challenges, while encouraging healthy lifestyles, respect for cultural diversity and inclusion, and civic participation. Such promotion of local collective action encourages youth to participate within their communities, thus becoming change agents who can transform their own lives and others around the world.

Team

Founding Story

As one of few Jewish women growing up in Mexico, Buchbinder learned early the value of diversity. Along with her active lifestyle and experiences fighting student apathy during university, Buchbinder soon became a leader in her community, inspiring others to act for justice from a young age. Her leadership led her to meet Dara Parker, Canadian founder of the UN program Sports-in-a-Box, whose idea to link global awareness and healthy lifestyle deeply resonated with Buchbinder. Deciding to adapt the idea to the Mexican education system, Buchbinder incorporated cultural diversity and civic participation into her program. DpC represents her dream for all children to learn how to carve out their own roles to create impact in their communities.
