Review for BRILLO DE SOL, Baltimore, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first visited Brillo de Sol in 2014 and was captivated by Letty’s story, her vision and remarkable success for the school. She is a true humanitarian! Her energy, enthusiasm, commitment and genuine love for the students is contagious and the same can be said of her staff.
In 2015, I volunteered at the school and worked with a group of children on vocal music. They learned to sing, “Here Comes the Sun” . I was amazed at how quickly the children memorized the words and were able to enunciate them so clearly in a very short time.
Not only did they discover their singing voices, they also had fun together and supported one another while learning English through song. Their efforts culminated in their performance of the song at a local community event.
These were a memorable few weeks for me and it has been a privilege to work with these students.
While it is the right of every child to receive an education, these children at Brillo come from homes with exceptional poverty and their education would not be possible without the assistance of many donors. These children are so happy and grateful to be attending school.
With this motivation. our family has and continues to sponsor 3 students.
It is such a pleasure to receive their letters and their teacher’s reports on their achievements.
I continue to visit Brillo de Sol and look forward to a long association iwith the school n the future.
