Every one of our anniversaries we are reminded of why we started Casita. This past Children’s Day we marked year number 6! As we know, circumstances for kids can be bleak, and for some of our children have already endured the cruel realities of an unjust world. But if there’s one thing that we’ve learned about kids is that they are RESILIENT. They can surpass their struggles and traumas; our kids are testament of that. And so they push us and inspire us to keep going so that in the future we can impact more lives. They are the absolute reminder of why we do the work that we do.
We’ve come a long way and there’s still so much more ground to cover, but our drive is intact! We look forward to continuing our growth and expanding our reach. The strength of our local community leaders, advisory board, staff, and our supporters from the US to New Zealand, and everywhere in between, have given us the motivation to keep pushing, to continue to better our practices, programs, and facilities so that our kids and new children to come have the best possible shot at the future they dim fit.
The prospect seems bright, and we will work tirelessly to reach our short and long-term goals. A huge thank you to all of our supporters for continuing to embrace our mission. With your help, we are one step closer to ending child abandonment in Copan Ruinas!
