Our Mission

The Tewecado Trust, Inc., works in partnership with The Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Poor to improve the living and learning environment for the Tarahumara and Mestizo children who live at and/or attend the Tewecado Mission Schools in the mountain towns in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico. In addition, the Trust supports the continued education of the students as they may complete junior high, high school and, if desired, go on to college.

Our flagship school, the Virgin of Guadalupe ("Tewecado" in the Rarámuri language) in Cerocahui provides food, shelter and education to over 100 Tarahumara girls ages 4 to 12 and classroom instruction for over 250 day students. The Trust also supports similar schools in Sisoguichi, Madera, Guadalupe y Calvo, and others as needed.

The Tewecado Trust, Inc., provides funding, mentoring and technical expertise to support its belief that education is the key to self-sufficiency in an increasingly global economy.
