Children at High Risk
Coprodeli offers a variety of outreach programs to 700 children and teenagers who live in abusive or otherwise detrimental environments. This can range from any type of interfamilial violence, to homelessness, to absent or neglectful parents, to being one of the poorest of the poor.
The children in our Children at High Risk programs come from the most troubling economic circumstances and are unable to pay even the smallest amount to Coprodeli for its full plate of support. Coprodeli relies on generous padrinos, or sponsors, to cover the costs of each CAE and CES and to ensure that each child in need has the resources and opportunity to overcome their circumstances
With Coprodeli’s Padrino Child Sponsorship Program, individual children at high risk are provided educational, nourishment, and psychological support: everything listed in the box above-right. The funds also go towards buying school supplies and uniforms for those children whose families cannot afford them.
If you or someone you know is interested in supporting a child in great need, please read more about the Padrino Child Sponsorship Program here.
