Children & Youth

In hopes of helping bring a brighter tomorrow for future generations, we have endeavored to positively influence the lives of the children and youth in our community through spiritual discipleship, educational motivation, academic support and mentoring. We ministered to the younger generation through the following:

LIBRARY/STUDY CENTER

Our study center was used by the community as a resource for help with school projects, homework assignments and language study as well as for recreational reading and activities.

 

 

 

CHILD SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM

Sponsors from Colombia, USA, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Austria and Sweden were a part of our sponsorship program for over 18 years.   Sponsors donated a yearly fee of $160 USD which enabled us to help children and youth attend school by providing basic needs such as uniforms, school supplies and hot lunches. As we observed the needs of the community changing over the years, we have since phase out this program.  Our sponsorship program  has been a highlight for us and many of our kids are now parent’s themselves!  It has been a thrill for us to see some of our kids making the effort required and putting in the hard work necessary to continue their education to become professionals.  Several even studied health-care professions and are now working at our clinic.
