With Deepest Thanks for Our Organization

A single parent in New Mexico talks about why sponsorship is life-changing for her and her children

The To’Hajiilee Day School, Children Incorporated’s longest-established affiliated project in New Mexico, educates around 317 children and youth annually in grades kindergarten through 12 in a community in which 99% of children come from low income families. Our volunteer coordinator is Katrina, a person with a dynamic personality, who has over the years, supported families of children in our sponsorship program as the school’s Family Engagement Coordinator. In that role, she is responsible for all […]

A Note to Remember

The principal of the Tohaali’ Community School holds on to a special letter from a sponsored child’s parent for many years

The remote town of Newcomb is situated on the Navajo Indian Reservation, amid the incredible desert beauty of northwestern New Mexico. The Reservation comprises more than 27,000 square miles of spectacular but inhospitable countryside, extending into both Utah and Arizona. Despite its massive scale and rich cultural history, residents of the Reservation are desperately poor. Newcomb is no exception. A trading post (which includes an impressive Navajo artifact museum) and a fish hatchery offer the […]

Comfort at Home and at School

Thanks to our sponsors, children in our program in New Mexico have help with resources on and off campus

About half the students at our affiliated project, the Dzilth Community School in New Mexico, live at the school during the week, as the distance from their homes in the remote areas of the Navajo Nation make a daily commute impossible. Furthermore, due to widespread, debilitating unemployment in the area surrounding the school, families struggle to afford even the most basic necessities. As a result, very few of the students have ever eaten a balanced […]

A Long Way to Go for Resources

For families of children at the Ojo Encino Day School, shops are hours away from home

The Ojo Encino (pronounced “OH-ho en-SEE-no”) Day School lies in a remote area of north-central New Mexico. The closest landmark may well be the Continental Divide. Even the nearest post office — in Cuba, New Mexico — is almost 40 miles to the northwest. Although situated outside of the Navajo Indian Reservation’s boundaries, this area is still very much part of the United States’ “Navajo Country.” The children who attend Ojo Encino live with their […]

Supplying Vitamins During COVID-19

Thanks to our partner, Altar’d State, we have been able to provide supplemental vitamins in bulk for children in Guatemala

Located just southeast of Mexico, Guatemala is the most populous country in Central America. Its spectacular mountains boast a wealth of natural resources and stunning biodiversity. For centuries, this land served as the core territory of the Mayan civilization. Following two centuries of Spanish colonization, Guatemala gained its independence in the early nineteenth century, only to endure another 150 years of political instability and civil unrest. Additionally, this area is prone to devastating natural disasters, […]

Sound Preparation for the Future

Maria Immaculata Children's Educational Centre in Kenya offers children hope and opportunity

Located in the periphery of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, our affiliated project, the Maria Immaculata Children’s Education Centre, supports students from kindergarten to twelfth grade. The Centre is located in an area just outside the city that has grown tremendously in population in the last few years, offering support to children of low-income families that otherwise would have to attend overcrowded public schools. “At Maria Immaculata, children receive a solid education, as well as resources that […]
