Twenty Strong Women- Lenore Mulvaney

$1,225.00 of $1,000.00 raised
I am very excited to be joining 19 other women on a volunteer vacation. We have chosen to spend our vacation time in Nicaragua helping build a home for a mother and her children in the rural village of Jiquilillo, Nicaragua.
A volunteer vacation consists of each of us paying for our own travel and living expenses.  This fundraising effort is for the cost of the home and possibly a latrine for the community as well; if enough money is raised. 
I feel very blessed in my own life to be able to travel and have good health. I feel it is time for me to give back and help those less fortunate. I am joining like-minded women to travel and meet these families. My hope is that we will be able to raise the $20,000 required to help this community. Any amount of donation is accepted and much appreciated. 
Thank you everyone in advance, for taking the time to read this and perhaps make a donation or forward this information to others to expand the awareness of this effort. 
In gratitude,
Lenore Mulvaney

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.
