I first arrived in Tashirat as a volunteer in 2008, and since then I’ve remained an admirer and supporter of the important and challenging work that the Tashirat community undertakes with creativity, dedication, and grace. The best testimonials to this unique place are the young people who’ve grown up there- it’s delightful to have been able to visit recently and to see the blossoming of some of the children who arrived at Tashirat with many physical and emotional difficulties, but have developed into caring, healthy young people in this supportive environment. The world needs many more places like Tashirat.

It has been truly amazing and heartwarming to witness the Tashirat Orphanage grow from its beginning in 2003, and to witness the staff and children grow over the years. As a sponsor, I love helping the individual children and supporting such an innovative and effective program. The Tashirat community transforms and deeply enriches the lives of everyone involved. Not only do the children I sponsor benefit but I benefit with the shared love, learning, joy and a feeling of purpose. It is a special treat in my life to feel the love of the children and the staff at Tashirat and to witness their growth and inspiration each year.

Working as a classroom teacher and youth organizer in Detroit, I have a sense of what it means to work with youth and communities that have experienced oppression and exclusion. I was so inspired by the work at Tashirat because of the full-human approach they take to help heal and empower the children.  From considering the words we hear from people around us to understanding how what we put into our bodies and how this impacts our physical, mental and spiritual well-being, I learned that rewriting the stories of trauma requires intensive and comprehensive approaches to healing.  I am a supporter, promoter and visitor of Tashirat because I know and have seen that what they do works- not only for children in Mexico, but for people around the world.
