We asked a young woman who lives with us about her adaptation and she told us:
One of the things that I have like most is being able to do my own things and learn more,such as: How to wash in a washing machine for the first time because in the Home where I lived for 15 years I never washed because the caretakers did it and later where I lived as an adult we did not have a washing machine, so it was the first time that I did it. The same for cooking.
These little things are gigantic in the independent life. When we see this we also understand many other things about the reality of our youth and adolescents.
We ask for your prayers that we may adapt to one another and live together in peace.
In our country, the policy for children in residence is that the child not reside more than one calendar year in an “orphanage” home, which in many cases does not happen. This social problem affects thousands of young people who are treated as adults, which on the one hand they are by chronological age, but are not prepared for independent living. Our Foundation acts to fill the gaps that are generated due to this failure in the law. We cannot remain oblivious to system failures that affect lives and dignity. For the girls in homes the question “what do you want to be when you are an adult?” the answer is simply to survive.
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Thanks Jesus, thanks sponsor
CasaEsperanza just received 30 bicycles! Ten will stay there for our girls (and plan B boys) while 20 will be shared with local orphanages (hogares). What a blessing!
