Twenty Women Strong-Christine Schwartz

$1,000.00 of $2,500.00 raised
Dear Friends,
 
I have been given an amazing opportunity to travel to Nicaragua this November with 19 liked minded ladies. We are going to BUILD A HOUSE and a latrine for a single mom and her children in the rural village of Jiquilillo, Nicaragua. As a group we need to raise $20,000.00 for the building materials and then we are off. We each cover the costs for travel and accommodations ourselves, as the money we raise is strictly for the construction of the home.
 
I am so excited that I have been given this opportunity to give back to a family who does not have a lot. We will be hauling bricks and gravel, and mixing cement to watch the walls go up during our 10 day stay. The family who receives the house will also be working alongside our eager volunteers.  On an afternoon off, we will be releasing turtles that have been rescued by a turtle hatchery.  We will have an opportunity as well, to cook for the local soup kitchen that feeds the families and children who earn their meager wages picking through the dump. I know this will be a life changing experience for me and especially the family who will finally have a roof over their heads and I so appreciate your support.
 
All donations are eligible for a tax receipt and this is a safe site to donate, very much like GoFundMe, but all donations go to the cause.
 
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and if each of you can donate even just a few dollars, it will quickly add up. Please feel free to share with others who would like to help and contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Let's do this!!
 
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
 
Christine Schwartz

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.
