Milagro Foundation Distributes $78,100 in October 2004.
On October 21, the Milagro Foundation Board met to talk about funding our new grantees. We voted to fund 24 agencies by giving away $78,100 to help make a difference in the lives of children.
These included a program called Amazon-Africa Aid. Our funds supported Quilombos which are communities of escaped slaves that live in isolation in Brazil. The money will go toward health care and education for their children. We also funded a wireless internet service connecting five schools in Uganda.
Closer to home, Milagro funds supported Cinnamon Girl, a program for young middle school girls in San Francisco; Mariachi Una Voz, a mariachi program at Glendale elementary school in Arizona; Oyate, an organization that teaches how to teach the portrayal of Native Americans in an honest and respectful way; and the South Bay Children’s Medical Clinic’s mobile clinic, staffed by volunteer pediatrician’s meeting the needs of the underserved children in the areas south of San Francisco.
Between October 1998 and October 2004, Deborah and Carlos Santana's Milagro Foundation has supported children
and youth in 29 states and 22 countries by granting $ $1,623,934.00 to 230 agencies working with children and youth.
