Your gift will be used to best meet the needs of a rural Nicaraguan family who will benefit from capital that will provide access to animals.
CLEAN AIR KITCHEN – $250 Clean Air Kitchens reduce respiratory disease among rural women and children while reducing the amount of wood needed to cook by 75%. Your gift will have a dramatic, positive impact on the health of families and their economic development by providing a clean, smoke-free kitchen and prep area.
MICROLOAN – $500 Business loans from banks are hard to receive and come with high interest rates.

Water paves the way for all future progress in communities.
FARMER’S WELL AND IRRIGATION SYSTEM – $10,000 Working around seasonal droughts can make farming in Nicaragua a challenge. A farm with its own well and irrigation system will grow crops without the need for rain, allowing farms to take advantage of the fertile soil in Chinandega year round. Your gift will include the drilling of a well and the construction of a complete irrigation system for a multi-acre farm, providing life-transforming income for a family and becoming a model for future farms across Nicaragua
