It all started with a desire to teach our Ancla children how to swim. Today it is an official team!
Ancla de Amor receives children from the Governing authorities that have been victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment and in some case orphaned with the desire to give them hope and a future! Our kids know they are no longer "orphans", in the term of the word, they are learning that their past is not their fault and they are learning that they have a voice and that they can choose to fight for their future! They are learning that Christ identifies them as a Child of God and our kids are embracing that truth!
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
When a child chooses to believe this truth transformation can begin but the first step is accepting that that God created them for a purpose and that HE LOVES THEM!
Our swim program has evolved to include competitors from our community! Our children are always surrounded by people that believe in them and encourage them! Our Ancla children are living proof that if you set your mind to it, you can change your life and your trajectory! A true example to all of us!
