Grandma Nana’s Corner

For several years I have been looking for an opportunity to visit Cantinho da Vovó Naná (Grandma Nana’s Corner – named after the woman who donated the original house and land), in Ibirité, Minas Gerais, Brazil. My opportunity came in August. This child development center is also located in an area plagued by drug trafficking.  Grandma Nana’s Corner is a place of refuge. The children are offered excellent nutrition, age-appropriate education by a caring staff, and the knowledge of our Savior, Jesus Christ. This is another ministry where a child’s participation greatly reduces his or her risk of sexual abuse and forced labor in drug trafficking. Sponsorship for these at-risk children changes their world.
