Souls on Fire Tour: Lisa BohmerDonate Now
My name is Lisa Bohmer and I am grateful to be a part of Souls on Fire this November 11-22 2018 in Nicaragua.
I have wanted to participate in this program after hearing about my colleague’s experiences over the last year.
For the past several years I have been busy raising my son and completing university. The experience and adventure of travelling to Nicaragua to build a home for a family in need has become a strong desire for me.
Nicaragua is a poor country and in order to build this home $20,000 will need to be raised. This will pay for materials and contractors needed in order to build a safe home for a family in need.
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.
