The need

“Two reasons exist for this brain drain: the lack of job opportunities in Mexico and Mexico’s high level of insecurity.” - Juan Ramón de la Fuente, former chancellor of the Mexican National Autonomous University

“This brain drain in developing countries like Mexico is an obstacle for economic growth, modernization and the improvement of quality of life.” - Alejandro Diaz-Bautista, an economics professor at Colegio de la Frontera Norte in Tijuana, Mexico

Focus on schools and high-schools

Most big companies and other initiatives focus on universities - but at university level, most students don’t live where they grew up. At this point in their lives, there is generally less focus on the local communities and more interest in moving to USA, Europe, etc. and some students don't even get the chance to attend a university.

Potentially good coders can start earlier than university level.
