Individual Sponsorship in Colima
Our home began in a rented house in 1992. A little over a year later, the church who started the home, purchased and moved into what would be the first of many children's homes.
The ministry has continued to grow and now has 12 homes with over 170 children in care, ranging from babies to university students. Our program provides full time care for the children 24/7 and supplies for all their needs. Our commitment is to take them to whatever level of education they aspire to, and for the most part are able to do that in own Christian school, which includes a nursery school, three levels of Kindergarten and Grades 1 through 12, with plans to add to that in the future.
Our program aims to provide these children with the same support that would normally be present in a loving Christian home, including provision for their emotional, spiritual and educational needs, as well as their physical well-being.
The majority of the children are not true orphans in the sense that their parents are no longer living, but rather they are children at risk who need protection from abandonment, neglect, abuse and poverty. Many of them arrived very emotionally damaged as a result of the situation they have been rescued from.
In the time that our program has been working with these children, we have seen some incredible changes in their lives. It is a pleasure to see the children begin to leave their past hurts and loneliness behind and embrace the love that is offered them.
