A private institution founded 1993 in Mexico City by a committed patronage and a solid professionally trained team. AYS provides a shelter home—with the outmost attention to quality of life—for over one hundred young girls and teens that have been neglected of their basic life needs.




Theory of Change

Through proper attention given to basic necessities, as well as reinforcing a well rounded emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual development the young girls and teens at risk of ending on the streets can now have the proper tools to become independent, capable women with equal opportunities for success. They grow into responsible, thankful women eager to give back to society.
