Mission, vision & values

Mission

Our mission is to change the lives of the most vulnerable people, mobilizing human potential through education, health and self-sustainability projects for the comprehensive growth of families as well as through training aimed at women and the general population for community strengthening.

Vision

Our vision is to develop and promote education, food, hygiene and health, safety and of course help economic and productive development for those who do not have what they need, those who have been marginalized and do not have access to any development instrument in the country.

Values
We value personal integrality, Impartiality, respect, and solidarity.

Products, services, and programs

Services

We contribute to improving the living conditions of the elderly in vulnerable situations, through adequate nutrition that reduces the rates of malnutrition and chronic degenerative diseases associated with poor nutrition, as well as promoting gerontological care and counselling in order to contribute to the improvement of the physical, psychological and social health of the elderly.

Our services include:

  • Nutritious breakfasts
  • Exercises for the elderly
  • Medical check
  • Craft workshops
Programs

We offer a Free Time School Program which contributes to the development of low-income children, in order to benefit them so that they continue to train. The program is coordinated in public schools so that boys and girls who live in poverty and extreme poverty and have the desire to study continue with their studies. It includes:

  • School supplies
  • Uniforms, Shoes, Books and Backpacks
  • Reinforcement in the areas of Mathematics, Language, Ortho-calligraphy, Reading and Christian Morals
  • Refreshment and Lunch from Monday to Thursday during tutorials

We also have an Education and Training Program for Women. 85% of the group of women that has been organized is illiterate, so workshops are held on:

  • Self esteem
  • Human rights
  • How to be good parents
  • Self-sufficiency
  • Crafts
  • Cooking
  • Microenterprise

Within the workshops that are held, technical workshops are held for women so that they can develop their capacities that allow them to generate income for the sustainability of the household.

Other programs we offer are: Women's Empowerment, School Reinforcement, Breakfasts for the Elderly, Medical Days.
