Social assistance is a sensitive institutional vector that is close to the problems of the communities, hence its obligation is to extend its benefits to young people who are the most exposed to situations of marginalization and circumstances of vulnerability. Experience shows that the promotion of workshops, educational programs, courses, talks, training and employments programs results in social terms of great benefit. It is the social development of young people that is the stake, and therefore the urgency of providing responses to their proposals.
This investigation was carried out at Centro de Día School. This School is one of the programs that DIF offers to those children not in school but of age to join public schools. The Department in charge is “Dirección Jurídica/ Departamento de Dormitorio Municipal y niños en situación de calle”. We were attended by Dr. David Duran Meneses, Head of Department. He is too interested in our project because there has not been projects like the one we are offering. He also expressed his concern because the right educational program for the second language is not offered to these children.
We also visited human resources manager at DIF Municipal located in San Baltazar Campeche Offices: Alejandra Contreras, she also confirms that Centro de Día School needs to create the necessity and to fill in some formats in order to state a program were we can offer the social service.
The Constitution of 1917 observes the idea of charity, since charity and philanthropy are evolving maturing and institutionalized to what is now known as social assistance, understood as a responsibility of the Mexican state that goes beyond of the social aspect and arrives at the ethical. Hence, the need to create an institution that coordinates public and private efforts that are performed in the field of social assistance. This idea was created by decree in January 1977, an organization with the function of bringing together, organizations responsible for assistance and in governing social assistance in the country, its official name was System for Integral Development of the Family DIF, which had among its attributions the one to promote the social welfare, to support and foment the nutrition and the actions of preventive medicine directed to childhood, to investigate the requirements of the child, of mothers and entire families, to lend welfare services for abandoned or abused children, etc.
Like all social changes and revolutions, the creation of DIF responds to the growing demand for complementary state aid and assistance services. Therefore, the federal executive declared that social assistance services were not a gift but a product of social justice that the State sought from its governed.
The mission of DIF is to create and consolidate actions and programs that generate conditions for vulnerable population to overcome their disadvantaged situation, through social policies that agglutinates and directs the efforts of their workers and professionals towards the integral development of families. Address the basic needs of families who are in social disadvantages and extreme poverty, assisting them with a set of actions intended to modify their social circumstances, which may prevent them from realizing themselves as individuals, as members of a family and social principles through its programs. Promote the integral development of the family and some communities, promote the strengthening of human values and social principles, and promote inter-institutional and intersectorial coordination to guide, complement and unite the resources and efforts of the government in favor of the vulnerable disadvantaged population.
