In 2017 the Sisters of Mary started their new Boystown in the Amarateca region. In 2020 a new school building was inaugurated to increase capacity. The Sisters are now able to provide a safe and caring environment for up to 900 boys to live and learn and give them a hope for a bright future.
At Amarateca Boystown, the boys receive full-time care including healthcare and three nutritious meals a day giving them the best possible start to life and a place to thrive. They have access to a variety of facilities for sports and opportunities to develop hobbies.
The boy’s full-time studies cover a range of academic subjects with particular emphasis on sciences and computers. Furthermore, they receive technical training in subjects including computer maintenance, electronics, welding and automotive mechanics. These are skills relevant to local job opportunities, so that the boys will leave school equipped with skills and trades to gain employment once they graduate.
All of this is only possible through the generosity of people like you.
Every child deserves a good start in life and with your help we can continue to make this a reality.
