Souls on Fire Tour: Shannon Casey

$0 of $1,000 raised
My name is Shannon Casey and I am participating in the Souls on Fire Tour in Nicaragua Nov 11-22 2018.
 
We will be building a house for someone in need. To give them the ability to have a roof over their head. Some security, a fighting chance to continue to improve their life.
 
I grew up in foster care and  I used to despise my life.  I look back at it now and I was fortunate to have a family take me in. I have decided I would like to use my energy to help a family, so that they too can have a home of their own.  I want to see the excitement in their eyes as many of us forget that there are people living in absolute poverty. No one deserves that. 

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.
