Sponsor a Child, Change a Life.

Home  »  Sponsor a Child, Change a Life.

Each child who arrives at our door  comes with his or her own unique unmet needs and challenges.  In short order,  given unconditional love and acceptance, specialized therapies and the generosity of volunteers, friends and sponsors, seemingly miraculous change begins to occur and another child is on the way to realizing his or her full potential.

We are currently seeking sponsors for the 2018 school year.  The success of our students and our program
would not be possible without that support.   For those of you who are already sponsors, thank you so very much for your continued support.

When you sponsor a child, you are just not changing the the life of that child and securing his or her future, you are helping the entire family and community at large.  100% of your tax deductible sponsorship provides direct tuition assistance to your sponsored child.  For additional information click here or e-mail us at donate@brillodesol.org.

Here are the children currently in need of sponsors.  

Wilber

11 year old Wilber lives with his mother and 4 brothers. Her mother works as security guard in a market. Complications at birth caused him to lack of oxygen and he spent a few days in the incubator. This has manifested itself in speech problems and learning difficulties. When he arrived at Brillo de Sol last year, Wilber was very timid and frightened of people in the community. In his prior school, the teacher scolded him for not speaking clearly and his classmates bullied him, made fun of him, and called him names because of his speech problems. He had very low self-esteem due to the insults and ridicule he endured. We have worked with him on his speech and his self-esteem. He has begun to trust that he will not be judged or made fun of when he speaks and asks questions. He has learned to express his emotions, has made friends and is beginning to make decisions on his own. Wilber already knows how to read and write. However, we must continue working on his reading comprehension reading fluency. In math, he has already learned the numbers from 1 to 1500, has learned to add with 2 to 3 digits of 2 digits, and to solve mathematical problems. He participates in school activities and is very cooperative. Wilber is another Brillo de Sol success story. Can you help him continue his progress?

“I spent time at Brillo De Sol in May 2016 and I never imagined the impact it would have on my life.  I fell instantly in love with the school and the special work that Letty and her fantastic team are doing there.  I was fortunate enough to meet Rudy and we worked on a art project together.  When I returned home, I knew I needed to do more.  He is such a terrific boy who is thriving at Brillo de Sol, and I am so thankful and proud to be able to help him with sponsorship.”
