Ana, who also goes by Valentina, is a sweet girl living in a dangerous part of Colombia. She is raised by a single mother who does not have a steady job. Their neighborhood has a significant drug and alcohol problem, which makes it dangerous for Ana to play outside. Ana is very intelligent, willing to learn, and is never shy about expressing her opinions! The child development center needs help in supporting Ana. Through your sponsorship, Ana will not only be given everything she needs to survive but will also be introduced to her loving father in heaven who will never leave her side. Thank you for making an eternal impact in this child?s life.
Palmas del Mirador Child Development Center
The Palmas del Mirador Child and Youth Development Center is a place where children are shown the love of Christ. The center provides a safe environment so that children can learn, grow, and realize their potential. The center staff are actively investing in the children by helping them with homework, mentoring them, and leading various recreational activities. Every week Bible lessons are shared with the children so they may know Christ as Savior and grow as disciples of Christ.
Colombia is a country on the northern tip of South America and is characterized by several rainforests and the Andes Mountains. Employment opportunities are limited, and those who are able to find jobs often work in construction or housekeeping. In order to try to make ends meet, multiple families often share one home. Unfortunately, many adults and children in the area have resorted to drug use due to difficult circumstances. Additionally, most adults in the community have less than a sixth-grade education.
