Twenty Women Strong-Alison

$1,000.00 of $1,000.00 raised
This November, I will be taking an opportunity to join a generous group of women, to engage in the life of a Nicaraguan village by helping to build a house.   A team of women will help the locals in the rural village of Jiquilillo, Nicaragua, prepare the foundation, carry bricks, mix cement, sort rocks, and then build the concrete walls that will eventually house an entire family of a single mother and her children.  This will be a great adventure for me and I look forward to all of the stories I will be able to tell.
Feel free to  donate any amount, which will go directly towards the building supplies required for this project. The funding goal for the 20 women project is to raise $20,000 ($1000 each).
With much appreciation,

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.

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.
