“He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the alien by giving him food and clothing.” Deuteronomy 10:18
AGCI’s Education Sponsorship program offers hope and restoration to the vulnerable families we serve. But what really makes our Colombia Education Sponsorship program so different?
In our Colombia Education Sponsorship program, education is beyond a desk. We meet families where they’re at to provide the education, support, and resources the entire family needs to thrive. By sponsoring a family, you can help educate parents on substance abuse prevention, behavioral management strategies, and the job training they need to better provide for their children.
When you sponsor a family through AGCI, you’re helping families find lasting change, break cycles, and create the futures they’ve always dreamed of.
40% of the children in our Colombia Sponsorship community have an undiagnosed and untreated learning disability. We are so proud to partner with a community-based organization in Colombia that works with these vulnerable families to help children with behavioral issues thrive.
This life-changing organization works within a community in Colombia in which 70% of the families are in the lowest socio-economic class. Education Sponsorship gives children the tools they need to excel in school through speech therapy, occupational therapy, and psychological support. Due to economic hardships within many of these children’s families, therapy is often inconsistent because families are unable to pay for these necessary services. Sponsorship fills in the gaps for these families!
Parental Support + Education
Due to stigmas surrounding learning disabilities, many families aren’t aware of the challenges facing their children. Often, if a child isn’t successful in a traditional school environment, they are labeled as uncooperative, unintelligent, or lazy.
Without the knowledge, income, or resources to diagnose and accommodate their children’s learning disabilities, families are unable and unsure of how to move forward. Through our partner in Colombia, we are also able to educate parents on learning disabilities and parenting strategies through parenting classes. This helps more children stay in school and strengthens families.
Education can lift up an entire family. Sponsor a family and make a difference!
