Fundación Lorena Ochoa
Sport and Stats
The former LPGA golfer is a two-time Major
World Championship winner and was ranked
#1 female golfer for three consecutive
years (April 2007–May 2010).
Location of Activities
In 1994 she started Fundación Lorena Ochoa
to provide a quality education to Mexico’s
most disadvantaged, marginalized children.
Its work has helped hundreds of children
in the city of Guadalajara through the
Centro Educativo La Barranca, and Ochoa
hopes to expand the program nationwide.
The program also offers schooling for
disadvantaged children and extracurricular
programs including sports, computers,
painting, and domestic skills, as well as
counseling services and adult education.
Why It’s Important
According to recent data, less than 32
percent of the Mexican population finishes
primary school and over 2,000 Mexican
children drop out of school every day.
