Dancing workshops in Colombia delight sponsored children

CFCA’s Hope for a Family sponsorship program focuses on the holistic development of children. Beyond needs such as health care, education and better nutrition, sponsorship can also provide counseling, art and dancing workshops, and more.

Paola, who teaches Maria featured in the above video, teaches one of the dancing workshops and has also been sponsored since 1996. She shares her story with us:

When I was 9 years old I got sponsored. The ladies at the kindergarten told us about the CFCA program and the benefits that CFCA was bringing to the families, and in this way I got sponsored through the CFCA.

I like sponsorship because we receive many benefits that make possible our social development. Benefits like: psychology, pedagogy, dental care, family counseling, etc.

I always liked the workshops. I think the CFCA helps develop well-rounded people through the workshops about art like handcrafts, dancing and literature.

When I was sponsored we had the chance to choose a workshop to learn, and I chose dancing workshops. Read more

Juan Antonio: The dancing man

Since August 2009, he has participated in a dance and gym class as part of his sponsorship benefits. Being involved in the dance program has made him feel, in his own words, “cool.”

We think Juan Antonio is cool, too. But don’t take our word for it. Watch on to meet this charming man.
