Change a Life
Empower a Child. A family. A community. Through our Shine Sponsorship program, you can make an impact that allows a child to rise above generational cycles of poverty by giving access to opportunity. Clean water, food, education, healthcare, and protection. Regular discipleship and mentorship allow these precious kids to shine bright in their communities, as they experience the power of the saving love of Christ.
What is our Shine Sponsorship Program All About?
We run one of our ministry programs in a garbage dump community, meaning the children and families we serve live and work in and around the local garbage dump, picking through all the trash to find plastic and glass to sell to the recycling center.
We believe in empowering children and their families to be the change in their communities. This is the best solution out of generational cycles of poverty. Promoting dignity and respect in each individual, our program aids in the essentials of life. Clean water, food, education, healthcare, safe homes, and economic development. We focus on making sure all the child’s needs are met and work holistically with the family and community to transform their future. Our children and their families must commit to attending school, and regular meetings with our ministry team to assess needs and growth. As we walk alongside these kids in the basic necessities of life we are discipling them as well as they grow in their knowledge of what it means to follow Christ. God alone is the answer to lasting change in these kids lives. Sponsorships are set at $35 Monthly. (Canadian)
$35 per child
The children we work with are born into pretty desperate situations. Many to young, teen mothers. Our great beginnings program connects a sponsor with a child from 0-4 to help provide basics for a great start. Formula, diapers early childcare education, and holistic family support.
To go to school, you must have a uniform and school supplies. The families we work with cannot afford these necessities and the generation before has little to no education, so there is no family support to a commitment to school. You can help change this.
1 in 3 Nicaraguan women have their first baby by the time they are 18, and the number of 10 to 14-year-olds having babies is rising. This starts the downward cycle of poverty. Sexual abuse is rampant here and children often turn into teens that don't know any different. Let's change this.
