Helping Hands

Changing Lives for a Brighter Future

Girls that need sponsors but are not yet living in one of our homes

The preferred choice for a child is to be raised by loving parents in an environment that is safe and allows them to grow and flourish.  Amparo works to assist families to make this a reality.

Ensuring safety & well-being

Creating intentional relationships with children

Helping hands is designed to create intentional relationships with children. Amparo works with the child on a weekly basis to ensure open communication built on a foundation of trust. The goal is to ensure the safety and well-being of a child while promoting a positive family dynamic.

Girls in the Helping Hands program are typically at medium risk for exploitation. We also have girs that are in the high-risk category but unable to come to the home for whatever reason are often in this program as well.

For this program, we make home visits to build relationships with families. We also give school tutoring once per week and teach a variety of workshops to equip the girls with soft skills. Our visits and tutoring can include:

  • Homework support, crafts, reading, etc.
  • We share the gospel and work through biblical based curriculum.
  • We also monitor academic progress by checking report cards to ensure they are attending school as well as work with the schools and teachers if needed to ensure the child has the best chance for success.
  • Each month we give classes of different subjects as sewing, painting, cooking, etc.                                                                              

Amparo financially covers all the child’s school supplies, fees, tuition, and transportation if needed.

Helping Hands children receive wellness checkups covered by Amparo.  All necessary medical attention is covered by Amparo.

Holidays are important to children but often when living in extreme poverty they may not even know their own birthday.  Helping Hands children receive a gift and recognition for their birthday and Christmas.

We also have an incentive program for children in Helping Hands. If a child maintains a C average in all their classes, Amparo will take them to a movie to acknowledge their achievement.

Common Questions

Help! Should I donate to Helping Hands or Jump Start?

Both projects assist girls who are in need and are vulnerable to being sexually abused. Helping Hands girls are exposed to more risk factors than Jump Start, but if Amparo has the means to find the girls before they are too exposed to sexual abuse, the abuse can prevented and the consequences lessen.  So, both projects are important, it all depends where your heart is inclined to help.

Can I get specific information about the girls to track their progress?

Yes, you may have specific information about a girl if you are touched by her story and want to support her. You may request updates and will receive a monthly report of her progress. 

All information is personal and confidential, so we ask all donnors who desire to receive updates on a specific girl to not reveal her identity to others when sharing her story.

The cost per child for this program averages $100 monthly
