A network of microphilanthropy that supports Middlebury students.

Twelve Middlebury students will be traveling to Mexico over February break as part of a Middlebury Alternative Break (MAlt) trip. We will work with Casa de los Ángeles in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. This nonprofit provides a safe haven for single mothers and their young children in the hope of nurturing families and creating community. In addition to working with children at the daycare, our group will also explore issues of inequality and poverty in San Miguel de Allende, a town known for its expat communities and tourism. Our goal is to offer a caring hand to Casa and a critical eye to privilege as we engage in our work.

MAlt is a student organization that provides student-designed and student-led service trips for Middlebury College students. MAlt offers opportunities for students to participate in strong direct service that seeks to address needs as determined by a local community partner. MAlt is committed to a needs-blind acceptance policy. As a result, we do extensive fundraising to ensure that participants’ financial needs can be met. We all work together to support one another, which is why this fundraiser is so critical to our efforts.
