Together we can Offer Hope

Dear Supporters!

It’s our joy and honor to wish you and all your love ones a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2024!

The Bienvenido Project (FUNFONAVI) is very grateful for your support and contribution in 2023 and previous years. Each of you is part of our history, of our achievements and achieved dreams.

Your generosity makes possible the expansion of our vision “Educating, Feeding and Values development to children, adolescents and young people who live in extreme poverty to build a community of hope.

By extending love and respect to children, your generous contributions have granted a life beyond destitution for our young ones and their families.

Thank you all for your partnership that helps us leave a better world than the one we found, where no one is left behind! We look forward to your continued support in 2024! We couldn't do it without your help!

In 2023, your generous hearts made a profound difference in: Education, ensuring that 85 children received full payment for the school year. Our feeding program served 50,464 meals, which relieved the pain and hunger of more than 150 families, reducing malnutrition, school dropouts and pregnancy in adolescents. Likewise, 150 children received backpacks and school supplies.

250 children enjoyed Christmas Day with games, lunch, two Medical Operations, the celebration of “Sueños de Princesa” (Princess Dreams) in which 16 girls participated, and the celebration of Mother's Day with an artistic show by the children including lunch and gifts for their moms.

The children participated in the Recycling and Environmental Care Workshop. The classrooms were remodeled and we renovated the physical plant.

The recipients participated in informative discussions centered on values and principles, fostering their development into responsible adults contributing positively to society. Children gained insights into their roles and responsibilities towards themselves, their families, and their communities. Additionally, girls had a platform to discuss women's issues, learning about their societal significance and embracing self-love and acceptance. We also had the opportunity to convene and listen to more than 50 men from the community sharing their dreams and enjoying a friendly time.
