Sponsor a Book and Learning To Fly

Patricino un Libro (Sponsor a Book) is a non-profit organization based in Monterrey. Their mission is to introduce children in underprivileged, marginal, and high-risk neighborhoods to Christian and universal values through cultivating the joy of reading, and to transform their lives in the process. In the past five years, Patricino un Libro has distributed over 75,000 books to some of Mexico's poorest neighborhoods, mountain villages, hospitals, cancer centers, orphanages, and nurseries for the children of underprivileged single mothers. Programs include:

  • Contests with prizes
  • Musical shows
  • Workshops for the mothers
  • Book distribution where each child receives 3 to 5 books
  • The donation of a complete set of books to the school or institution visited

In 2013, the Sponsor a Book team expanded their ministry to include a Workshop Program for female prison inmates. Their "Learning To Fly' program involves weekly includes weekly classes, workshops and group and personal counseling sessions for inmates. The 6 month program covers topics such as self-esteem, forgiveness, conflict resolution, values, communication, assertiveness, the importance of having a life plan and more. Isabelle and team have plans to further expand the "Learning to Fly" program to include juvenile delinquents. Stay tuned for more updates on this life-changing program.
