Instilling values in our children is one of our main duties as their caretakers. It is a well-known fact that the values learned in childhood remain forever and help one to handle difficult situations easily and systematically. There are numerous examples of great people who give due credit of their success to their inherited values.
The task of instilling values is essential for children’s academic and professional excellence and making them a good citizen of their country and the world. The values such as honesty, compassion, confidence, integrity, educational values, sincerity, politeness and patience can help in all aspects of life. These values enable a person to distinguish between good and bad, create an impression wherever they go, and act as a foundation for a happy, fulfilled, and successful life.
At Semillas de Amor we follow a value model called the Six Pillars of Character which includes: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Compassion and Citizenship.These are not just posted on our walls – they are taught, exemplified, and celebrated every day.

OUR VALUES IN ACTION
Several of the children volunteer with the animal rescue group, Unidos Para los Animales. The older kids have been through dog training classes and we foster puppies to help socialize and love them as they go on to their fur-ever families.
