thank you for your interest in learning more about the poverty in mexico
Oaxaca, Mexico (pronounced wa-ha-ka) is where Simply Smiles began our work in 2003. Today, Simply Smiles is applying our holistic approach across half a dozen project locations in Mexico's most impoverished region.
From the urban center of Oaxaca City to the remote mountain villages of Oaxaca's countryside, Simply Smiles is addressing the symptoms and the root causes of this region's crippling poverty. We believe Mexico's greatest resource are its people. And Simply Smiles works each day to help provide the bright futures that every person deserves.
One out of every five children in Oaxaca suffers from stunted growth, mostly due to malnutrition. 
What Oaxacans live on per day. Money sent home from family members living outside Mexico accounts for the third largest source of income statewide.
