Empowering the Poor of Nicaragua – For Life

Fundraiser Image To celebrate our upcoming anniversary on April 21st, Donna and I wanted to do something different and special. We have been blessed in so many ways: with a wonderful family, great friends, good health, and prosperity. As a result, we have felt increasingly called to give back, and at the heart of that call has been our efforts to assist the poor of Nicaragua. We have joined with Opportunity International to address holistic ways to partner with the poor and alleviate poverty. We have committed to do for some what we would like to do for many. We hope you will be moved to help us reach the “many”. With a match of $125,000, our goal is to reach over $250,000 by year end. Thank you for helping us empower more lives in Nicaragua.

Where Donations Go

Today, we are at an exciting juncture with all of the programs in Nicaragua and your partnership could significantly impact our success. The Entrepreneurship school will graduate its first class in 2016. More farmers are being served than ever. The program has already surpassed its 2015 goal to serve 800 farmers. More than 1,000 are receiving training, a loan or market access. We are now doing everything possible to ensure that harvest is successful in the face of insufficient rainfall. Your timely support can help ensure the completion of classrooms and preparation for the first graduating class, and completion of the yucca processing plant before January harvest. You can help Nicaraguan families achieve many levels of transformation as they work their way out of poverty with dignity. With your partnership, we are empowering farmers to increase yields and income, students to build skills for the future, and communities to realize their own vision for sustainable livelihoods. On behalf of our clients, thank you!
