Our Team

The Tashirat Staff directs the Pequeños Milagros project, supported by the many years of experience they have gained through their involvement with Tashirat Orphanage since 2003. All Tashirat Staff have voluntarily dedicated their lives entirely to the care of the Tashirat children and the mission of Tashirat.

Lucero Esmeralda Manzanares Escobar

She graduated as a general nurse, with a diploma in Human Development and Thanatology.

In 2003 she began working for the Dr. José Parres General Hospital of Cuernavaca. There she learned about empathy, and it awakened in her the awareness that we all need each other, and that life is all about “paying it forward”.

In 2012, she was offered the position of Head Manager of the Department of Citizen Attention and Social Work at the Morelos State DIF, where she had the enormous opportunity to tour the municipalities of the state and have direct contact with the most vulnerable populations while trying to address and solve their different problems.

Currently, she collaborates with the homes within the Pequeños Milagros network, helping them to comply with State regulations and paperwork.

She feels very happy and excited to be part of this work, through which she can see the lives of many boys and girls positively transformed.

She is also trained as an Equine Therapist. She works with children with autism and attention deficit disorder as well as intellectual, sensory, psychosocial and physical disabilities.
