United Vision primarily sends well-trained volunteers to Mexico to teach English using highly effective method.
Our help is aimed at rural areas with some tourist potential. The intent is that local people could make use of the knowledge of English at labour market or they could start off their own business activities connected with (eco)tourism. In the next stage other projects are planned to be implemented – microfinance, fair-trade, e-shop with local products, help with promotion and development of (eco)touristic activities, search for sponsors for education of children (so called “adoption at a distance”).
