Centro de Integración de Menores en Abandono


Cima is a non-profit organization that provides assistance to boys who live on the streets or find themselves in high-risk situations. CIMA welcomes boys that suffer, have lost hope and have been rejected by their own families. Boys from nine to sixteen years of age are accommodated with the goal of reinstating them in their homes and in society. CIMA tries their best to provide the boys with a home where they can satisfy their basic needs of affection, housing, food, health and education. Projecting values such as teamwork, discipline, commitment and respect is an integral part of life at the CIMA home.

I am hoping to give my time. I work with at risk youth in my own country and I am looking to grow and sharpen my Spanish in South America, while giving my time to empower the local culture. I am beginning to speak Spanish and I would like more information on volunteering with your organization.
