Do you have paid staff at Fundación Corazón de Niña?
No. We have volunteers. Several of them receive a small honorarium but it is nowhere close to a living wage. We have four women here who assist with school work and athletic programs.
Three of the women live with us in the house. They get their room and board and we have the convenience of having them close at hand, which works well.
We hire skilled tradesmen to do electrical, plumbing and construction work as necessary and when funding permits, as the house has required major expansion to accommodate so many people.
Again, it would make such a difference if we had more GEMS and/or Corporate Sponsors.
There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about. — Margaret Wheatley
