The children acquire the values, discipline, and skills necessary to becoming contributing members of society. To date, 20 children have left their shelter with promising career paths and a formal education. Your donations provide more than just physical maintenance. It is an investment in their present and futures; it is giving them opportunity. It is an investment to their nutrition, their education, and the staff who educate them. It is an investment in their potential, their ambitions, and their contributions to the community. These children are encouraged to “Dream Big” – that all things are possible.
All of the kids and the staff teach and learn from one another. The older siblings are mentors to the younger ones.
We believe that play is incredibly powerful because it helps teach kids social, problem-solving, and life skills.
We provide our kids opportunities to give back to their community to teach them gratitude and critical service learning.
Our organic garden project at the Children’s Shelter helps us to become self sustaining. The children enjoy growing plants such as chili, pumpkin, lemon grass, lime, banana and mulberries. The best part is it is also good for the environment.
