Every year like clockwork, we find ourselves in the company of our loved ones, gathered around a birthday cake anxiously waiting to blow out the candles and make a wish for our health and prosperity. We may look around and feel an abundance of love and support from our loved ones, thinking silently to ourselves how fortunate we are to feel the love from family and friends.
Unfortunately, this isn’t a universal experience. Around the world, children and adolescents face the perilous reality of an unsafe home, negligence and abuse, and without access to public services such as quality education or safe drinking water. This is the reality for nearly 81 million children in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Luckily, organizations such as Maestro Cares Foundation, specialize in changing this reality by providing children in Latin America and the United States a safe place to live, learn and play. Maestro Cares Foundation has changed the lives of over 10,000 children and adolescents, all thanks to the commitment of supporters who believe in our mission.
