Together with the Order of Malta Drying Little Tears provides the expansion of a preschool near Mexico City.

The Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation Drying Little Tears supports the full expansion of a new boarding preschool for children of ages 4, 5, and 6 who come from very low income and broken homes.


The boarding school Internado San Juan Bosco in Mexico City was built for children who are at risk of violence, drugs and abuse. Since 1985 the Order of Malta runs the boarding school helping the children to get off the streets.

The school provides these children with a place to grow in a safe environment, where they learn social skills, knowledge, moral values, where they are given psychological help – and an education.

The newly-built preschool will consist of a 700 m² in total where children of 4, 5, and 6 years learn and get their knowledge and understanding of the world. The installation of a fence, two new class rooms (for max. 30 children), new restrooms for small children as well as a playground area with outdoor toys for small children and new green areas will be constructed in the next 6 months to give small children the best conditions to have a good and protected childhood in a beautiful surrounding.
