I first visited Hogar Infantil La Gloria four years ago when I went there with a group run by my church. I learned that the Mexican government places orphaned, neglected, and abused children in homes like La Gloria. It such an amazing place. They provide a loving home for children, many of whom have never had a loving home before. The children get the kind of upbringing any good parent would want for their children. They go to a good bilingual school in Tijuana. Teachers work with the kids on their homework every day. A nurse attends to their physical health. There's a baby room where babies and toddlers receive the one-on-one attention they need for proper development. There's lots of room for kids to play, including a playground and basketball courts. They've recently expanded to include housing for adolescents so they can have more privacy than the younger kids. This is one of the best run charities that I know of, and I would recommend donating your time with them if you're ever in the San Diego/Tijuana area.
