Every one of these items will help empower a child, a family, or even an entire community. These gifts are all part of the larger Amigos for Christ development plan focused on serving rural Nicaraguans in a sustainable way. The end result is a healthier place in which children and families can grow and achieve their full potential. Thank you for giving these Gifts of Opportunity.
CHICKENS – $12 Chickens and their eggs are a great source of economic growth and nutritious food. They are easy to breed and will multiply your gift to create income, share with neighbors, and ultimately make a better life for the whole community.
PIGS – $100 One female pig can produce as many as 20 piglets each year! Pigs can provide food, helping to fight malnutrition in children. Pigs can also create an amazing source of income for families who raise them in order to breed or sell.
TRAINING – $250 Give the opportunity to learn new and improved ways to raise animals, the skills to bring them to market, and manage finances that are created. Training rural farmers provides the practical skills that they can use to earn and manage an income for their families and rise out of poverty.
MODERN BATHROOMS – $619 Bless a family with a dignified space to take care of their physical needs. Bathrooms help diminish the spread of disease and ensure that water sources are protected from human waste so families remain healthy. Each bathroom includes a flush toilet, sink, shower, and septic tank!
WATER SYSTEMS – $1000 Help bring safe, clean water to those who need it most. Your gift will help drill wells and provide the infrastructure needed to provide in-home access to clean water. No other gift produces a more dramatic effect on life than clean water. By providing access to one of life’s most precious resources you can have an immediate impact on the direction and future of a community.
CLEAN AIR KITCHENS – $200 Clean Air Kitchens reduce respiratory disease amongst rural women and children while also reducing the amount of wood needed to cook by 75%. This gift has a lasting impact on the health of families and the environment.
WHERE NEEDED MOST We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The donations will be used to provide assistance where it is needed most in order to best serve rural Nicaraguans.
