We Need Volunteers in the U.S.!

Support the U.S. Board Nearly all of our financial support is managed through the U.S. Board, which is made up of five volunteers who give as much time as we can.

Can you help us? We are in need of volunteer help in several areas, both in Peru to supervise the kids and in the U.S (Spanish translation, grant writing, and WordPress help).

We need your help.

Last week, our board had a meeting via Skype to review our financial situation. The news isn’t good, and we need your help.   We’re in trouble.

How much goes to administration?

How much of your donation to Niños Del Sol goes into the pockets of the administration? None. Here’s the scoop on how we do that. Our board in the U.S. and our Peruvian board are composed completely of volunteers. Darrin Davis, our U.S. board president, is a volunteer.

A difficult update to send.

Hello, everyone. So sorry for the long delay in getting information to you. We appreciate your ongoing support and patience. Here’s what’s happening with us at Ninos Del Sol right now. We’ve been transitioning from the outgoing president of our U.S. nonprofit (in Florida) to our incoming president (in Texas), which has meant jumping through legal and banking hoops. Meanwhile, …

Think small donations don’t matter?

We’ve had over $4,00 in donations through the new website since our campaign started in June. It’s come from more than 45 donors — so we’re averaging less than $100 per donor.

What can one person do?

It’s impossible to help all the children in the world, or even in Peru. What can one person do? Unless you’re Mama Kia, or Mother Theresa, or Ghandi, it feels like the answer is “not much.” But even the great humanitarians of history have been backed by a group, funded by the collective. A small group of committed funders is …

Payment processing problem

If you set up a recurring donation during June or the first part of July, there’s a possibility our system will only process your first payment. I apologize for the inconvenience, but our system was going through some changes during that time. The issue is now fixed. If your payments were affected, we”ll send you an e-mail around the time …
