Supporting the hard work of Eveling and Rosa at the Children's Garden in Belen

A first time visitor to the Belen Day Care will see happy, well-behaved children learning and playing together.  What isn't as obvious is the fact that these 42 children will have a better chance to succeed later in life than many of their peers.

The day care was founded by a Swiss non-profit to meet a need.  Single mothers working for $30 a month in the textile industry needed a safe, nurturing place for their children.   Eveling and Rosa, Two great and committed ladies, run the day care.  Their daily duties include teaching, feeding and caring for the children. 

The school has a classroom, courtyard and a gathering place.  Since Helping Kids Round First began assisting the day care in 2013, they have been able to build an additional classroom.  We donate books and other school supplies, shoes, clothing, toiletries, and, of course, baseball equipment.  Because most of these children have no access to dental care, we limit candy and always bring lots of toothpaste.  With their mothers working long hours to survive, anything that Helping Kids Round First and other can provide goes a long way.
