FCDS partners with organizations, such as those listed below, to accomplish our mission.
These children are being poured into by godly leaders weekly, and we hope to complement what is being built into their lives. We welcome your creativity and personal touch with each lesson. Your team can prepare songs, dramas, crafts, bring puppets, do scripture memory, games, etc. We know the Lord has put special gifts and talents into each member of your team, and we want to encourage you to use them to impact these children for eternity.
With recent world events, each of our partners has had to initiate appropriate limitations for programs pertinent to their circumstances. Foreigners coming to only be with the children is not always the best for each of the respective programs. However, special projects funded, facilitated, or some other empowerment for each of the respective programs is always a good way to be involved.
Please note: Each organization has its own method of receiving gifts and donations if you would like to assist them directly. Any gifts given to FCDS on their behalf will be expensed and the resources provided for that purpose under the name of Fundación Centro de Suenos following our Policies and Procedures for the Management of Donations.
