Sueños de Yarali (Dreams of Yarali) is a children’s charity that seeks to give assistance to kids and their families facing poverty. All over the world, so many children need food, clothing, education, and other basic necessities to grow and develop. It is the goal of this children’s charity to pave the way for these children to have a chance to live a better life.
We give smiles to children and a chance to improve their quality of life. We cannot change the world, but we can change a child’s life. We have helped more than 20,000 children in Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Peru, and the United States of America.
Where it all began
Even before instituting Sueños de Yarali as a children’s charity, the founders of this organization already organized donation drives for children. They started in a school in Honduras, providing school suppliers to children facing extreme poverty. In 2000, they began to donate consistently to this school, not just in the form of school supplies but also by giving away toys.
Sueños de Yarali started small, supporting just one classroom at their initial donation drives. Over time, they increased the donations so that they would cover another classroom. Eventually, through hard work and patience, they were finally able to donate to the entire school.
The donation drives did not just stop after a successful project in Honduras. Over time, they expanded their reach and increased their donations even more. It reached neighboring schools and villages, and it gained even more ground soon after.
Expansion beyond Honduras
As the years passed, more organizations and private individuals volunteered their time and money to support this children’s charity. The founders traveled to different countries and saw that poverty does affect children everywhere, regardless of where they live. This is why they expanded beyond Honduras and also started projects in North America, South America, and Central America.
The official founding of Sueños de Yarali (Dreams of Yarali)
To make this children’s charity official, the founders instituted Sueños de Yarali (Dreams of Yarali) in honor of their little angel Yarali Stephanie. It now operates in five countries: Honduras, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, and Peru.
This organization now has around 50 volunteers altogether scattered across the five countries mentioned above. It also has numerous sponsors and donors across the globe.
What does Sueños de Yarali do?
This children’s charity recognizes the difficulties kids and their families face in relation to poverty. To help these people find a little support and comfort as they go about their daily lives, Sueños de Yarali created several campaigns. Here are some of the things Sueños de Yarali does as a nonprofit for kids:
· Provide school supplies to children
This is where Sueños de Yarali started, and this type of project is something they still do today. Investing in education is key to helping children grow into kind, emphatic, and successful individuals. Children would no longer stay out of school simply because they have no supplies. Now, they can have the materials needed to study and focus on school with the help of Sueños de Yarali.
· Give away food baskets and meals.
Another aspect of poverty that Sueños de Yarali seeks to address is hunger. Children would not grow healthily if they have nothing to eat or if their meals are not good enough. This charity gives away food baskets and meals to children and their families, so they can focus on their tasks and studies.
· Distribute toys children can play with.
Children should have a chance to act like children—without heavy responsibilities, free to play around and be silly with their friends. Unfortunately, this doesn’t often happen in areas with extreme poverty, as children are forced to start working early. To address this, Sueños de Yarali gives away toys to children to remind them that they deserve to enjoy the little things.
Children should be afforded the chance to enjoy their youth. This is what Sueños de Yarali seeks to resolve.
Apart from these, Sueños de Yarali also provides hygiene kits and cleaning products to the kids and their families.
