Sponsor a Student Feeding Program

feedingCaring for the children of Los Cedros, Nicaragua,
in partnership with Escuela Cristiana Havila

Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America and the second poorest in the Western Hemisphere.  According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 27% of Nicaraguans suffer from undernourishment, the highest percentage in Central America.

We know that nutrition plays an important role in a child’s physical and mental growth and plays a role in determining his or her long-term well-being.  It is difficult to pay attention in class when your stomach is rumbling!

By providing these meals, children have a greatly improved chance of academic success and good health.

“Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same.” Luke 3:11 (NIV)
