Become a Sponsor We currently have 29 madrinas/padrinos ("Godparents" in Spanish) who support our families. We could manage several more families, and mothers come to our gate to ask for help, regularly. You will receive photos and data about your child and family, with updates from time to time during the year. The cost to support a child and family is a mere $29 per month. Some sponsors choose to pay by the year - you will then receive a reminder at the end of that time to "re-up" your sponsorship if you choose to do so. Others pay semi-yearly or quarterly; some set up an automatic monthly payment with their bank or credit union.

DONATE.Many aspects of the program have developed since it was first initiated, and these activities are not funded by the support for the individual familes that sponsors send. An important one of these is SCHOLARSHIPS. Our children will be unable to attend high school with out help - the costs are just too great for our families. Our rent has increased 3-fold and is not completely supported by the Sponsor monthly payment. We are also now hiring our young student teachers, Any excursions are also extra expenses.
Fundraising is done throughout the year but we depend also on individual one-time donations from interested, generous persons. Or you could become a madrina or padrino for an aspect of the program on a regular basis. Our rent is about !180 per month, only a few dollars of which comes from the Sponsors' contributions. We pay $40 per month to the 3 young teachers, collectively Our chicken giveaway at Christmas (for the traditional Christmas tamales) comes to nearly $250.
Every month, every year - we need to come up with these funds some way or another!
You could send a check for any of these amounts, or whatever you can afford, to Doroteia Pathways Foundation, our NGO ,, at P..O. Box 7514, Chico, California 95927.

VOLUNTEER We always welcome volunteers, for the day or any time you can commit to. We welcome students and others with art activities to share, especially when they expand our current repetoire. As Director, I am happy to "supervise" or whatever your program requires, if you need that sort of backup. But please, come visit us for the day if you are in San Pedro. Call Miranda at 3227 5506
