We believe that education is a basic human right not simply a privilege. The value instilled in each child educated through our schools in La Limonada and the unconditional love shared with them makes an impact in their lives that is impossible to put a price tag on.
Each of the Give Christmas gift options will impact lives of children in La Limonada. Whether you choose to Give Shoes, Give Salaries or Give Scholarships you will be changing lives of people like José Antonio, Miarita and Wanda.
A generation of children in the community we serve is learning about God’s love as well as practical life skills that will provide opportunities to escape the cycle of poverty, abuse, gang activity, teenage pregnancy, neglect and hopelessness.
Global education research shows that educated women also tend to be healthier, participate more in the formal labor market, earn more income, have fewer children, and provide better health care and education to their children, all of which eventually improve the well-being of all individuals and lift households out of poverty.
Statistics also reveal that every additional year of formal schooling for males reduces the risk of their becoming involved in conflict by 20%.
On this “Cyber Monday”… Give Education… Give Christmas.
