Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America and second poorest country in the western hemisphere. Two years ago, Unity 4 Orphans visited Nicaragua and developed a relationship with various ministries. When we returned in March 2016, we began an official partnership with Centros Emerge. With our help, they were able to add another feeding day for the children and also they were able to start an english program.
We also helped Hogar de Fe to start the building protect of a transition room for the older orphans…and this is just the beginning!
Centros Emerge provides meals for children at risk. They feed between 60 to 80 kids twice a week. Emerge also provides Bible studies and mentorship to the kids. They open their doors to 40 kids every day after school and provide snacks and a well structured tutoring and mentoring program. Now an English program is active and running strong. This program supports 13 kids in their journey of learning English as their second language in order for them to have a more successful future.
Hogar de Fe is an orphanage that helps the orphans and children of extreme poverty to provide a loving atmosphere, schooling and teaches them the love of Jesus. They currently are finishing up a building project that will change the lives of at least 7 college age girls. When kids turn 18 years old, the orphanages are not obligated to continue their help to these young adults. However, Hogar de Fe built a transition home where these girls can live and learn basic life and social skills.
