One foot in front of the other
With volunteer John
I, the author have been with Ojala Ninos for over 10 years. I have seen first hand the progess, set backs, changes, struggles and accomplishments our organization has experienced in its growth.
When our Founder started Ojala Ninos it was in her patio. She recently published a book, The Open Gate by Elsmarie Norby sharing her stories of Ojala Ninos, the community she lived in and the people we serve to date.
I am proud to witness the impact Ojala has had on the children and the community as a whole. Every child in the community attends a formal school but sadly San Miguel Viejo only has Kindergarten and an Elementary school yet we do see the kids go on to secondary and high school. Our tutoring or academic enhancement classes have proven beneficial.
Your donations help us with this as well as materials used in other classes and workshops, along with services by a certified pschycologist for our positive parenting and youth groups, books, sports equipment, drinkable water, a daily lunch and so much more, all at no cost to the child.
We appreciate your continued support and wish everyone a safe, healthy, happy holiday and new year!
