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.
