Domestic violence sends hundreds of girls and teens into the street, placing them in a situation of vulnerability that makes it hard for them to study or even develop a healthy personality. Casa de las Mercedes Foundation I. A. P. provides a place where hundreds of girls have found a safe place to grow up and go back to school, where we face difficulties with a brave face, knowing that we're stronger together.

We made the visit to Japan for a tournament with 6 of the girls in the class, without a doubt an unforgettable experience. As a volunteer I can only say, if you dream big … they will do it with you. In class we teach them to achieve really big challenges.
