There are a variety of ways to get involved. To fully sponsor a child to receive Voces de Guiraa' services costs $12.50 USD or $250 MXN per week. There are options to fully or partly sponsoring a child. We accept monthly, semiannual or one- time payments. We ask for at least a six-month commitment to ensure that Guiraa’ has a significant amount of time to make an impact on the child’s speech. It is $650 USD per year for a full scholarship for one child.

One-time donations are also accepted to pay for other services such as transport to and from classes, holding group events, purchasing needed learning materials, and doctor consultations.

If you are interested, please contact us to let us know how much you would like to donate (as little as $5 USD can pay for a taxi for a child to attend a class). Once we have secured a certain amount, we will work with the speech therapists and list of scholarship requests to decide the best place to use the money. Each sponsor receives an update on the child’s progress every three months.

There are no admin fees deducted; 100% of the donation received goes to paying for the child’s therapy sessions or family support programs.

The program has been able to provide the following scholarships.

9 year old girl

Juana has tubular sclerosis. When she started having seizures several times every hour, her parents had to choose to pay for expensive medication instead of paying for speech therapy. The scholarship program started with this family after we realized that many parents have to make similar choices, and although very important, speech therapy is not usually the priority when it comes to the several medical treatments needed.

13 year old boy

Carlos was diagnosed with Pervasive Development Disorder which is particularly unique because he has developed language, but only uses his speech to interact with himself while using various voices and tones. His classes with Guiraa’ are aimed at using his speech to communicate with other people with the goal to help him be able to develop social relationships.

Carlota was a premature baby along with her twin sister, Mariana. Carlota can speak but can’t walk, and Mariana can walk but can’t speak. Her parents were able to focus on paying for the physical surgeries that Carlota needed while Guiraa’ was helping Mariana learn how to speak without a cost to the family.

8 year old girl

Carolina was born to a single mother who is a prostitute; she decided the best place for Carolina would be with DIF government program. It is believed that Carolina has Cerebral Palsy but only receives minimal treatment because of the government’s lack of resources. Carolina developed quickly when the government helped her with physical therapy, so we think that speech therapy can aide her to begin to speak and able to communicate. This relationship is particularly important because Carolina will not be able to be under government supervision after she turns 18 years old.

3 year old boy

Lalo has Down Syndrome and when his parents were on a long list for aide from the government for medical attention and assistance, we realized that we could support him directly during his most important years of development. He has made great progress with his facial motor skills and is now able to control his tongue which was a main challenge for speech that he couldn’t do before.
