Our Sponsor a Child ministry ensures that every child has access to the education needed to become a self sustaining individual and contributing member of their community.

El Ministerio de San Pablo (St. Paul’s Ministry) will facilitate the sponsorship of teenage youth by church groups, individuals, or families who want to make a positive difference in the lives of the children of La Gran Familia.

An anonymous donor will match your funds for the upcoming year. Therefore, any donation you give will be doubled!

  • Provide education for one teen including: tuition, books, supplies, uniforms, transportation, and tutoring.
  • Help foster communication between the teen and their sponsor
  • Empower the teen to reach his or her potential and to become a positive influence in their community.

Leonel arrived at La Gran Familia on May 14, 2020. The police found him walking the streets of Cuauhtémoc during the night. He said that his mother had left him with an aunt. This aunt eventually took him downtown and abandoned him on the streets. The police took him back to the aunt’s house, but there was no one there. They had all left.
He was brought to La Gran Familia by DIF, the Mexican CPS. Leonel is now 12 years old and he is in the fourth grade. None of his family has been found at this time. Praise God, he is healthy and now safe.
