Supporting CIMA is helping our children and teenagers in improving their living conditions. It holds their hand in this journey that represents for them the process of change,and give them the opportunity to have a more worthy and healthy life with his family.
Collective type sponsorship:
The boys of CIMA – who are not institutionalized- have the freedom to enter and retire. The child or teenager can stay in the home for 1, 3, 6, 9 months or as long as they wish. The ideal in the training process is 24 months. In reality there have been children and teenagers who have stayed just for a few months, and others who entered at a young age and left when they reached adult age.
Our main goal is to reinsert the child / teenager in his community and in his family when he feels ready. They are free to leave whenever they want: the will to change and stay is the key element of the CIMA methodology.
Because we know that all sponsors will not give the same contributions and the same attention and interest to the boys, their support contributes to a general fund to cover the expenses of each boy and of all of them.
This type of collective sponsorship allows to cover the expenses of a group of minors, gathered in a specific pavilion. It covers school expenses, food and / or access to health
This type of sponsorship supports all our children and teenagers without privileging any and represents hope for all of them.
This type of sponsorship allows us to avoid jealousies and inequalities between our children, those who would have a sponsor and those who would not have sponsors.
Each sponsor may choose the pavilion that he/she wishes. He / she receives news from its members on a regular basis. For sponsors who want, they are informed about the progress of a child.
When the child considers that he is ready to return to his family and community, information about another boy in the same pavilion will be provided such that the same dynamic can be maintained, giving opportunities to more children and teenagers.
