2017 Girls Nicaragua Mission Trip- AbbeyDonate Now
Many of us have no idea what it’s like to be hungry or to worry about where your next meal will come from.
This summer I am reaching out to my family and friends to help support me with my mission trip to Nicaragua. We will be working to serve local children and their families by helping to fund and provide nutritious meals to those in need. We will also be fundraising towards providing safe shelters for ten low-income single mothers, as part of the Women's Faith and Hope Cooperative in Jiquilillo.
Thank you for your support!
NICARAGUA JIQUILILLO PROJECTS
Speroway works in the rural Nicaraguan communities of Jiquilillo, Los Zorros, Padre Ramos and the community of El Limonal near Chinandega. Activities and initiatives are pursued in collaboration with these communities, and in partnership with other participating organizations with a shared vision of alleviating poverty through improved education, accessible healthcare, and enhanced self-employment opportunities.
Speroway focuses on school feeding to provide children and families with the essential nutrients they need. School feeding programs improve health and accessible education, which is instrumental in breaking generational cycles of poverty.
School feeding programs not only supply educational and health benefits, but contribute to gender equality, food security and poverty alleviation—all in a single intervention.
WOMEN'S COOPERATIVE HOME BUILDING PROJECTS
Nicaragua has one of the highest housing deficits in Central America with over 78% of the population living in inadequate homes or are homeless. Lack of adequate housing causes families to live with a constant burden of uncertainty, stress and fear. Safe and decent shelter provides an opportunity for families to break generational cycles of poverty and build better, healthier, and more stable lives.
Speroway is raising funds to support the relocation and safe and adequate housing for ten low-income families. Through your gift you will be helping to support these ten women and their children who are apart of the Women's Faith and Hope Cooperative in the community of Jiquilillo.
