Ojalá Niños is a non-profit year round program that gives 100 + indigenous children in the rural community of San Miguel Viejo, México the opportunity to explore their strengths through art, music and literacy in a safe place where children can gather and be guided without judgement. Ojalá Niños believes that this kind of environment stimulates thought, imagination and the potential to find liberation from poverty, ignorance and oppression; and can lead to personal pride, strength of character and the desire to build a cooperative community. $28.00 per month supports one child’s access to literacy, music, dance, art, field trips, life skills and enrichment classes.

CAMP CORAZÓN VALIEnTE
Camp Corazón Valiente serves children that reside at Casa Hogar Corazon Valiente–a non- profit home for girls where every girl has the opportunity to lead a childhood free from abuse, discrimination and poverty–and the surrounding community through a holistic, engaging summer camp allowing kids to explore how to care for all of God’s creation, teaching God’s purpose and plan for us in caring for creation–the earth and one another. The camp engages music, arts & crafts, creation science, outdoor games, culinary activities and bible-study discussions centered around creation, the Creator and stewardship of the earth and one another.
CASA HOGAR CORAZÓN VALIENTE
Little Things Matter supports small-scale investments that generate long-term impact such as organic gardens and chicken farming. These projects provide nutritious food in addition to needed revenue to support the programs and needs of the girls that call Corazón Valiente home.
Casa Hogar Corazón Valiente is committed to enriching the lives of young girls who have been neglected in Guanajuato, Mexico. Barbara Rueda and Rodney Dye founded Córazon Valiente in 2014 to provide these girls with a safe haven as well as a place to help them with psychological, educational, health and wellbeing issues. Inspired by community values and by the spirit of belonging, Casa Hogar Corazón Valiente has created a family-centric environment to provide children an opportunity to thrive free from abuse, discrimination and poverty. Here, children get a chance to play in wide open spaces and learn about art, music, literature and technology. Here, they can become whole, stable children of society with happier and healthier futures. To learn more, visit: https://www.casahogarcorazonvaliente.org.mx
MANOS Y CORAZÓNES DE OTOMIES UNA COOPERATIVA DE MUJERES
Manos y Corazónes Otomies is a cooperative kickstarted by Little Things Matter to empower the women of San Miguel Viejo through employment opportunities, encouragement, and resource support leading to long-term success in their community. Through the cooperative opportunity our goal is to lead women to financial opportunity and self-sufficiency. Investing in a woman’s economic empowerment impacts her personal value and self-esteem, influences her children through positive role- modeling, and impacts the entire community. Dignified work changes lives and allows women to flourish. We believe that we are better together—collaborating on product ideas, supporting one another through individual talents, and commitment to projects that benefit the cooperative .
