Pressing Needs

We currently have several pressing needs for our Children's Home and Jungle School.

      1. Children's Home - Currently, we need to complete some much needed projects at the Children's Home, such as complete/repair electrical hookups & lighting, rewiring needed in some areas, fans for some rooms, toilet paper holders, towel racks, steel or wood shelving for indoor storage room and some rooms, laundry room sinks, clotheslines with posts, curtain rods for some rooms, plumbing help needed (many loose fixtures), etc. Please consider "sponsoring" one of these projects. Ask and we will provide costs.

      2. A new 30-passenger mini-bus. Our current van is 8 years old and is made for 15 passengers, but we have 23 kids currently in our Hogar de Amor Children's Home. With all the kids, volunteers and housemothers, and trips to church, outings, etc. it often means closer to 30 and we do not have the capacity to safely transport this many people in our current van. Please consider helping us fund-raise so we can purchase this new Hyundai Coaster to transport our kids safely and comfortably. The cost is just about $58,000.

      3. High School scholarships for 2016. We currently have several high school students. We have always believed that education is one of the main ways out of poverty. Please consider sponsoring a student. High School tuition, uniforms, shoes, school supplies, special projects, etc, run about $50/month per student.
