Twenty Women Strong- Diane Roemer

$1,000.00 of $1,000.00 raised
I have always wanted to go on a volunteer vacation and when I heard about 10 women strong, (that has now turned to 20 women strong) I jumped at the chance to go.  I have been waiting for an opportunity like this for many years and now that my own kids are in high school and college, I felt that this was the right time for me to go and help.  I am a nurse with 20+ years experience with so much to give.  I see my own 3 children growing up and would like to be able to show them how to help others in need here in our own community and around the world. 
In November, we will be heading out to Jiquilillo, Nicaragua in order to build a home for a mother and her children in need.  We would like to raise $20,000 and any amount counts. Thank you in advance for all your support!

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.
