Thanks to your support, more than 80 children and young people of the shelter have the opportunity to feel more connected and in a family, with the possibility of having a special moment in the company of their friends.
Being involved in a team sport helps the physical and social development of children and young people.

Children at Villas Miravalle receive a “domingo” (May 2017), an allowance that gives them the opportunity to buy a ticket to the movies, candy, or the little toy they never had the opportunity to buy before, but more importantly, it is to feel that someone cares and takes care of them.
Thanks for your support!

One of our biggest accomplishments is the 3×1 Project. We were able to give the children secure transportation, educational instructors, and built a brand new swimming pool.
