THE STORY:

My name is Alex Bajana and I am a rising senior at Nicaraguan Christian Academy (NCA). Last year I had the privilege of working alongside some of my best friends such as Nicole Molina and Gabriel Gonzalez in making an impact on the lives of eighty children from Zacarías Guerra's orphanage, and this year we’re doing it again, and we need your help. Members of the NCA community and other schools will train and teach the rules of basketball to young orphans between the ages of seven and twelve. Over the course of ten weeks this fall, we will bond with these children and share with them basketball and Christian values. We will coach these children every Saturday for several hours starting in September and culminate in a competitive tournament in November. Each practice will begin with small group sessions in which we will grow closer to the children and share our own experience with Christ. We would also like to equip the orphanage with tools to foster basketball training. I saw first hand how well this project worked out and how happy the kids were every Saturday when we came to train with them. And those happy faces could not have been possible if it weren't for the many kind-hearted sponsors we had. Now we call on you again. With your aid, we will renovate and provide new nets for the basketball courts, buy customized jerseys and shorts for each player, new balls for the orphanage, and trophies and medals for the winners of the tournament. The total cost of the entire three months is about 2,500 dollars, and this is where we need your help. Any amount raised in excess of our program costs will be donated to the orphanage for sports-related programs and other pressing needs. This project requires a lot of collaboration from generous people and organizations, and we need your help in making it possible. I know we share a willingness and desire to take initiative for the betterment of our community. This project is our way of putting words into action. I have personally seen how the kids have been impacted by this project and I want us to do it again and change more lives. I hope to count on your contribution of any amount, however, large or small.
