We believe that at the end of the day the impact we might be able to have in these children’s lives is limited and temporary and the only solution for a long term impact is for each child to understand how important they are to God and that He has a perfect plan for each of their lives.
We have four areas in which we serve at-risk kids:
- Nutritional meals/Dietary supplements as needed
- Academic support (tutoring and support for the family with uniforms and school supplies)
- Medical and dental care
- Spiritual guidance
This is only the base of what CDI does. We are sensitive to the different cultures of each city where we have a center so that we can better prepare each child for a future there.
We also provide help in the following areas:
- Computer classes
- English as a second language classes
- Carpentry and jewelry making classes as well as lessons in any other area for potential future employment
In Choluteca and Managua we also have the support of a malnutrition clinic (CNI: Centro de Nutrición Infantil, Children’s Nutrition Center) there we support children with severe malnutrition.
