Community Involvement in Early Childhood
Community involvement is beneficial in all areas of life. We see the impact it has on the workforce and company culture, in schools, and towns, in Latin America.
Perhaps, one of the greatest examples of the profound and inspiring ways that it impacts our society, is when we look at the benefits of community involvement in early childhood.
Children grow emotionally, intellectually, and physically through both their relationships and through their community. They might find this community in school or at home, on the playground, or in the backyard.
For children, community involvement and engagement produce long-term benefits in their lives. It gives them a sense of belonging and is crucial to the building of their identity.
COLOMA Foundation states that the popular proverb, "it takes a village to raise a child", produces a clear message and that is, “the whole community has an essential role to play in the growth and development of its young people.
It’s noted that parents and family members play a vital role in the life of the child and so, too, does the entire community as a whole.
To experience the benefits of community involvement, we must first look at creating the community. From there, the relationships are built and the self-esteem and happiness of the child is given a foundation to flourish and succeed.
Community involvement sends a powerful message to children. It’s one that says "you are important"... "You are loved"... "You belong". And it’s a message that holds the strength to empower every child in Latin America.
With the help of many generous individuals, corporations, and partnering wish-granting organizations, our Foundation has welcomed more than 338 children from preschool and primary located in small municipalities in Yucatan Mexico.
Our signature events offer you a way to get involved with our mission to provide a gift toy, meals, books, and school supplies to every child in these communities in seasons like Christmas and throughout the year.
