In the heart of our mission lies the belief that every child deserves a bright future and opportunities, and that education is a powerful tool to empower them to seize those opportunities, reach their goals, and transform their lives.
Over the years we have seen sixty-seven young men and women finish high school, and a bunch of them thriving into college for a higher degree. Last year, the high school graduation rate was 100% and 5 out 6 students are already registered in college this year.
This cannot be possible without the generous support from more than 140 sponsors, who have responded to a call to become agents of change. Their generosity has enabled us to provide supplies, tutoring, homework support, and many other benefits for hundreds of students along the years. Our students are being affected in a positive way by developing crucial skills like reading comprehension, writing, math, and spiritual guidance. Skills they will need to overcome challenges and pursue their dreams.
This year, 22 new students will enter our education program in San Matías learning center. Children from 2nd to 5th grade with enormous potential to become leaders and beacons of hope to their communities.

Sponsorship goes beyond financial support, fostering a sense of connection, mentorship, and guidance for each child, with a lasting impact in their education, health, and even their life goals.
Their future awaits and we will be there for them.
