Adopt a wayuu Child: be a part of their well-being and development
The Prosowa Foundation and Caring for Colombia unite to create a program in support of children of La Guajira: "Adopt a Wayuú Child".
This sponsorship plan was created to support more than 300 Wayuu children who reside at the ethno-indigenous boarding school in Nazareth in the Alta Guajira during academic calendar periods, supervised by the Diocese of Riohacha.
Your donations will contribute to necessary food and hygiene expenses so that each of these children can carry out better academic work as a result of improved well-being.
Why is it important to feed a child before they go to school?
Any person, whether a minor or an adult, upon spending many hours with an empty stomach and without access to a balanced daily diet, will not only experience physical symptoms such as dizziness, weakness, gastric problems, and reduced bone development, but also serious problems with concentration, irritability, fatigue, and neurological development.
why sponsor a wayuu child?
4,770 indigenous Wayuu people in the Colombian Guajira have died of hunger in the last several years and more than 34,000 live in a state of malnutrition. With your support, we will help reduce deaths caused by malnutrition and promote childhood education and development.
Each month you will receive a report of your child's progress, communication exchange with them, and a certificate of your donation.
Thanking prosowa sponsors
To ensure a lamp
is always lit,
we must not stop
giving it oil.
Every act of love,
carried out with all one's heart,
will always succeed
in bringing people closer to God.
Live simply so that others
can simply live.
How can there be
too many children?
That is like saying there are too many flowers.
If you cannot feed
one hundred people,
feed just one.
Do not give only what you have in excess,
give your heart.
Happiness is a network of love
in which souls are held.
I know faith in the small things,
since it is within them
that strength resides.
What matters most
is how much love we put
into the work we fulfill.
"A life not lived for others is not a life."
--Mother Teresa of Calcutta
