BRINGING CHILDREN IN TECATE, MEXICO

THE LIGHT OF LIFE.

SPECIAL PROJECT

TRAINING CENTER PROJECT

We are in need of a dedicated, onsite training center to better prepare the incoming Shining Light staff for effective service. This center will offer Spanish courses and TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention) training. This facility will also have the ability to house the course facilitators and incoming staff in training. To bring this vision to life, we need a total of $205,000. Presently we have $50,000 in matching funds available which means we need to raise $155,000 in donations.
