Quinceneras are an important Mexican tradition for young girls in Latin America. This celebration is a significant rite of passage – a day of huge festivities with family and friends marking a girl’s 15th birthday. In the past, we found that the children we serve who lived in a children’s home didn’t always share the same anticipation for this day as they knew they might not have as extravagant of a celebration as their peers at school. But, now, thanks to our team of committed sponsors through Back2Back’s Child Sponsorship Program, we have been able to throw amazing quincenera parties for the girls in the children’s homes, reminding them that they are loved and valued. We are so thankful for our sponsors and community that teams up to ensure each girl feels special on their quincenera.
