The Sisters at the Villa Infantil have no means to support themselves and the children. Neither the State nor the church is obligated to assist the orphanage. They depend on private donors, sponsors and fundraisers to provide the needed financing for the family at the Villa.
In rural Mexico, the average child leaves school at the age of eleven, after the sixth grade. Some children are removed from school and required to go to work to help support the family. Our goal is to provide the children at the Villa an opportunity to complete their education to the best of their ability. Your financial contribution will assist us in achieving this goal.
Please consider sponsoring or co-sponsoring one of the children at the Villa Infantil Orphanage. Your financial contribution of as little as 300 pesos ($30.00 USD) a month, will help provide an education and assist in assuring the general well-being of a child. Sponsorship donations can be made by cash, check or credit card.
You will receive newsletters, regular updates and photographs of the child you are sponsoring. Visiting and communicating with your child is encouraged and we will translate any correspondence you would like to share with him or her.
A general donation is always very much appreciated. By contributing this way, you will be part of the effort to help these children thrive and grow in a safe, healthy and loving environment. We welcome your monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual donations to help support the family at the Villa Infantil.
