The Santa Inés Family is a group of 35 girls in Grade 9 at Villa de las Niñas, Tegucigalpa . They are cared for by their Mother-Sister, Sister María Rosa.
Sister María Rosa says that the girls are “very talented, some quieter, others more patient and reserved, and most of them very cheerful. Although they are adolescents and it is a somewhat difficult stage to teach, I like to share with them, listen to them and what we enjoy the most together is sports. They love to play, it is the most effective method I know to keep them healthy, active and in good spirits for study.”
With the help of our donors, the Sisters provide the girls with school supplies, uniform, shoes, and cover basic expenses and medical and dental care.
When the children start school in Grade 7, they receive their school uniform, a bag, three pairs of shoes, a set of colouring pens, some house clothes and sports uniform. They also receive books, board games, and other indoor game materials for use in in their dormitories during leisure time. They have a general check-up to assess their medical and dental health needs. Your sponsorship of a Family will provide these essential items, making sure that each child has the clothing, food, and the books they need for school.
Keydy came to Villa de las Niñas after the death of her father. She lives with her mother, sister and brother. The family struggled after his death, especially as her father was the breadwinner for the family.
Keydy found new hope when she joined Villa de las Niñas and the Santa Inés Family. Her favourite past-time is reading books , stories about young people that inspire her and leave her with very important reflections on life.
Kedy states that when she leaves Villa de las Niñas, she wants to “continue fighting to be able to help my family. By becoming a member of the military or a professional stylist, I would also like to be able to help the school as a thanks for everything they do for me.”
Dayana’s father passed away the same year she entered Villa de las Niñas and she now lives with her mother. Losing her father was a struggle for Dayana and her family.
