Students reaching their academic potential.
Education is probably the single most effective path out of poverty. But, sadly, one of the heftiest prices paid by those living in poverty is the impact it has on their child's educational performance. When children start off with that large a deficit, their ability to succeed in school diminishes. All too often they fall farther and farther behind their peers. SACS is committed to helping students reach their academic potential.Obviously, with your generosity, there is much more we can do.
In 2019, with your help SACS fulfilled its objective of delivering hope and joy to over 2,500 students in need. Help break the cycle of poverty with a simple donation and deliver a backpack filled with school supplies and hope.

Casa del Niño "Nueva Familia"
Casa del Niño “Nueva Familia” is a study center for children between the ages of 6 and 16. They began by helping primary school children, who, after finishing their primary studies didn’t want to leave the center. So, with a lot of effort and a donation of two containers and a train wagon, the latter was refurbished into what is today a high school study center.
These children receive the necessary emotional support, meals and recreational activities to complement their education and academic cycles. The center also offers educational workshops (math, arts, crafts and physical education, among others) considered to be an essential element to help children learn how to think, develop their talents and share and interact with their peers.
Primary kids get two meals a day, breakfast and lunch or lunch and an afternoon snack. They wash their hands before eating and brush their teeth after every meal. The center works out-of-school hours and it is a requisite that the children don’t miss official school classes to earn the right to receive the study center services.
They are taught to take care of their belongings to give back to the community, doing charitable work for others and thus value and understand the hard work behind the gifts that they receive. I loved this place, it gives the children so much more than academic support; they get a sense of belonging and self respect.
