We’d like to introduce you to an amazing woman who has dedicated her life to serving the VisionTrust children of Brazil, Eronita José Santos Silva. At a young age, Eronita was faced with many challenges. Her father, an alcoholic, abandoned her family leaving Eronita’s mother alone to care for her six children. On top of that, Eronita’s mother suffered health problems which made it difficult for her to care for Eronita and her siblings.
The love and care Eronita experienced at the VisionTrust Projeto Amar Learning Center made such an impression on her that at a young age she decided she would someday work on staff there and help other children like herself. As an adult, Eronita enrolled in college to study pedagogy and in 2001 joined the VisionTrust Projeto Amar team as a teacher. Eronita teaches fifteen precious three and four year olds, and she is a sensitive, devoted, responsible and loving educator. She also actively volunteers on the worship team at her church and keeps busy at home by spending time with her husband Manoel and her eight-year-old son Samuel. Over the past twelve years, Eronita has helped the children of Goiânia, Brazil know that they are special and loved by God.
If you would like to partner with Eronita in bringing hope to the children of Brazil, contact the VisionTrust offices at 719-268-2943 to find out how to get started!
