Godparent Plan

This is a monthly contribution donated by generous friends, with which the basic functioning of the Foundation is secured. This support is very important to us and highly valued by the children and young people who benefit from it, because although they are young, they are fully aware of the change generated by the sponsors of the Foundation in their living conditions.
