Thank you so much for your continuing support of Project Chacocente! Your support is truly making a difference in the lives of the children, the families of Project Chacocente, and the families in the surrounding communities. People in Nicaragua are beginning to refer to the Project and the surrounding area as Chacocente.
In December the Chacocente Christian School will graduate its third class of eleventh graders. If you would like to help make this occasion memorable for these ten students, please send $30 to Project Chacocente USA, P.O. Box 128, Lexington, Massachusetts 02420 and put Graduation 2016 on the memo line. This money will be used to purchase the student’s cap and gown and a school flag as a memento of his/her time at the school.
Living in a better environment than the La Chureca dump of Managua and getting nutritious lunches every day at the Chacocente Christian School mean that Esperancita and Eveling (almost 9 and 12) are growing up happy and healthy.
Note: Several of you have asked about communicating directly with the children electronically. We have not as yet been able to work this out. We will let you know when we are able to facilitate this endeavor.
Chacocente Christian School Sponsorships
Urgent! More sponsors are needed to provide the necessary funds to run the school. If you, or someone you know, may be interested in sponsoring a child for $360 a year, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Mary Beth at 585-265-0097
Note! If you have not yet donated toward sponsoring your child in 2016 please do so in the very near future. If you have any questions about your sponsorship please contact me at the above address. Please let us know also if you are no longer interested in or are unable to continue sponsoring a child.
Sponsor a Teacher
We are very proud of the devotion and expertise of all of our teachers. Aiming to provide academic opportunities far above those available at state-run schools, we hire only qualified, capable teachers. We recognize that most teachers in Nicaragua are grossly underpaid (often earning less than sweat shop workers), and we are committed to fairly compensating our employees. We’re hoping you will help us! Please consider sponsoring a teacher. Your $500 monthly sponsorship (or $6,000 annually) will better the lives of not only the teacher but also the lives of his or her students. Join together with friends and churches to truly make a lasting effect.
