$20 a month can change a child's future
What is pays for:
Your sponsorship will provide an at-risk child with the opportunity to enroll in our community center, learn valuable skills and break the cycle of poverty.
By meeting the needs of vulnerable children, in the communities where they live, we help preserve the family unit which helps prevent children from ending up in orphanages.
By working in a holistic manner to provide at-risk children with quality supplemental educational support in their communities, targeting areas in which they personally need help, leveraging technology to teach cutting edge skills, working in partnership with local business, schools, staff and volunteers, while teaching spiritual formation, instilling values and providing nutritional assistance, we produce better academic results and improved community outcomes that help to radically change lives.
The truth is that the only thing that is more expensive than educational assistance for these children, is the lack of it.
We serve the children in four areas, intellectuals, spiritual formation, educational reinforcement and nutrition. The exact programs each child participates in varies depending on the center they attend.
Current programs include:
Computer Classes, typing, MS office applications, Internet applications, email, web design and programming.
The ability to join specialized clubs teaching robotics, engineering, woodworking and culinary arts.
Bible classes teaching them about God, prayer and what it means to be a disciple.
Math classes, tutoring and help with their homework. Access to a lending library of educational books. Use of our computer classroom to do research and investigations for their homework.
Participation in our supplemental nutrition program.
Participation in service projects to their local community.

Deigo Fenando Salvatierra Mejia is 11 years old.
What he likes most about computing is being able to learn more things about computing that he did not not. He is very happy that Professor Eduardo and Timothy have given him the opportunity to learn computer skills at the Cadanino Community Center because chances like this do not always occur. So he takes this opportunity to learn as much as possible.
He knows how to use MS word, touch type, basic HTML and coding in scratch.
He enjoys the many things he learn here including math, and is thankful because in other places they charge a lot for the classes.
He also really enjoys the Bible classes given by Mrs. Lucy.
When he grows up he wants to be an accountant because he is good at math and he also wants to be a programmer, seeing other people program inspired him to create web pages so that other children can learn to be programmers.
He is currently participating in:
- Computer classes, learning graphics design and programming
- Bible club
- Math classes
- Robotics club
