About Corazón de Vida
The issue of child abuse, neglect and abandonment is a world-wide issue. According to the UN over 150 million children are abandoned and living on the streets worldwide. In Northern Baja’s area of Mexico alone, over 6,000 children live on the streets or under dangerous/abusive situations, and thousands more live in extreme poverty. Mexico currently does not have the social programs that we have in the U.S., no foster care programs, no welfare system, so the only way to care and support children in need is through a network of private orphanages, funded entirely through individual and corporate donations.
Corazon de Vida (CDV) is a 25+ year U.S. 501c3 non-profit organization providing life-changing support for orphaned and abandoned children in Baja, Mexico by funding local orphanages, providing quality of life improvement services and investing in the children’s future by funding higher education. Through their life-sustaining program they provide monthly funding for the orphanages under their care. These orphanages give abandoned children security, nutrition, shelter and access to a reliable education. They also fund scholarships for teens aging out of the orphanage system to continue their education. They provide consistent, monthly support to 10 orphanages, housing over 500 children. Their university program currently has 40+ past orphanage residents in college or technical school, and serving as role models to their younger ‘siblings’.
We are on a mission to break the vicious cycle of poverty from perpetuating child abandonment.
We believe that every child’s life is valued and holds the same potential, excitement and opportunity as any other life. It is up to us to work together to make sure our care transforms into each child’s hope for the future.
