The KIND Mexico initiative will work across KIND-s legal, policy, and regional program departments to increase legal orientations for unaccompanied children in transit; monitor conditions for unaccompanied children seeking access to protection; provide technical assistance and training to policymakers, child welfare officials, and pro bono attorneys; and work collaboratively with Mexican and Central American partners in the public and non-profit sectors to develop a strong platform for protecting the rights of unaccompanied children across the region.
