Centro Infantil de los Angeles Partners

Partner Organizations of Centro Infantil de los Angeles

I love that you are reading the blog! If you haven’t already read my prior post, HERE is a bit of background on Centro Infantil de los Angeles, where I went to volunteer. In short, it provides much-needed daycare for low-income families in San Miguel de Allende. When I was visiting, we also toured some of their partner organizations who are either helping or are associated with Centro Infantil, and I wanted to highlight them in a separate post. So, here goes! Meet some of the partner organizations.

I was invited as a guest by Centro Infantil de los Angeles with the express purpose of letting others know about getting involved in volunteering. I came away with more – a heart, vision, and love for their programs. All opinions are mine.

Centro Infantil San Pablo

To say that Centro Infantil San Pablo (CISP)  is one of the partner organizations isn’t 100% accurate, but I didn’t know how exactly to qualify it otherwise. You see, Centro Infantil de los Angeles services children from a few months old up until they can enter preschool, and CISP picks up where they leave off. CISP offers free preschool to needy families and prepares the children for entering first grade. The two organizations used to be separate – and they are at different locations – but they united so that they could serve more families.

While we visited CISP, the children’s parents put on a show! The moms (and one dad!) formed a theatre group to try and teach the kids a lesson through a self-written play once a month. It was a joy to watch, and both the parents and children had a great time! Take a peek at the facilities and the children below!

Santuario Hogar Guadalupano

Some of the children who are at Centro Infantil de los Angeles and CISP are from orphanages. We didn’t get to visit the girls’ orphanage, Casa Hogar Santa Julia Don Bosco, but we did visit Santuario Hogar Guadalupano, which is for boys. The property itself has an interesting history of being the home of a Mexican actor. We took a peek at where he used to live along with the beautiful chapel (look at the ceiling in the photo!).

The campus includes different areas such as a working greenhouse, gardens and educational buildings. There were a few male volunteers (not a part of our all-girl group) who engaged the boys in a game of soccer. It was really sweet to see because those boys definitely need good male role models in their lives.

Feed the Hungry

Part of the premise of both Centro Infantil de los Angeles and CISP is to provide nutritional meals for the children. While I was volunteering, we served the kids a hot breakfast and lunch each day. The meals are nutritionally sound and provide much-needed nutrients that the children may not be getting at home. Centro Infantil and CISP are just a few of the many places Feed the Hungry helps. They actually provide 4000 meals a day. FOUR THOUSAND A DAY!! It’s safe to say that they are making a HUGE impact in their area.

We were able to talk to several of the volunteers and employees as we toured their facility. I am so thankful for an organization that has such a heart for a basic, yet all important, need of hot meals.

I truly enjoyed my time at Centro Infantil de los Angeles, and it was wonderful to see the hearts of so many others who are impacting needy children in San Miguel de Allende. What a fabulous group of outreaches that all work together for the common good and interests of future generations.

Spread the love

    Such a heartwarming post. My dad does the same for old age homes because he misses his parents. It’s a wonderful movement on behalf of the 2 organisations to help children not only in their development educationally but providing for basic needs like food. Such good acts of people can spread positivity and that’s all the world requires!

      Such sweet words! And I’m so glad that your dad does that as there are many people in homes that no one visits. He has a great outreach! 🙂

    You know whenever I read about organizations doing good one thing that strikes me is what are they getting out of it. I have seen way too many fraudulent organizations. But after reading it I would say it feels good to know they really care.

      Yes! I’ve seen firsthand the work they do – and no big corps making money for sure. Ha!

    It’s so sad that these kiddos wouldn’t even have a proper meal if not for the volunteers. Sounds like an awesome charity to get involved with!

    If we are there, we would definitely help and involve the kids. We expose them to the world and how others need help. We show them that despite little things, they have something that could be of value to others.

    Programs like this are amazing and much needed! My daughter is a preschool teacher in a childcare center that offers free and reduced rate childcare to low income families.

    What an amazing programme to be invited to come and join – I would love to do some volunteering opportunities overseas like this, though my preference would be with an animal charity x
