Souls on Fire Tour: House Building-AloraDonate Now
My name is Alora Regan and I am with the Souls on Fire Tour Nov 11-22 2018.
What peeked my interest is that My mom is an ER nurse and heard about this program at work. I had done a volunteering trip in 2011 to Ghana, Africa, and it changed my life. I have a passion for helping others as well as experiencing other countries. I really like being hands-on and watching progress that I have made in a building or community in general. I see the impact just one group can make for a village of those in need - I think it is extremely important to be giving and selfless.
What I hope to get out of this experience is to change a life for the better, meet new people, experience culture and make a difference!
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.
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.
