Playtime is freeing for the mind and body! House dad Mario has been creating toys during the pandemic, and this popular go-cart is his latest!
Some things seem to transcend cultures and languages, like playing with toy cars and animals! The pandemic has allowed deeper relationships to be forged – between children and between parents and children.
Our kids are grateful for a safe and healthy place to heal and grow, and we are honored to provide that place and space.
Directors Juana and Ramon Prenza; Ramon also serves as Country Co-Director for Kids Alive DR.
Happily buried among her students, Academic Coordinator Isha is a graduate from Constanza School and is currently studying in university on a Kids Alive scholarship. She has selflessly served in numerous roles throughout this pandemic.
House mom Minerva welcomes home one of her kids on his return from school. The love and warmth (and hugs!) of house parents like Minerva are great blessings for our children!
Country Co-Director Ramon checks on one of the children. Ramon has decades of experience loving and restoring kids from hard places and beautiful stories of God’s transformative hand in the lives around him.
The upstairs of the multiuso (multipurpose room) is now a school, with the older kids on individual computers and tutored by Eva M. Russell teacher Rey, who was in the program as a child.
After school, just across the CMP campus in the “multiuso” (multipurpose room), the kids are greeted warmly by house dad Mario and house mom Jani. The children gravitate to them for a hug and connection, something many lacked prior to living here.
