THE STORY:

My name is Gabriel González and I am a rising senior at Nicaraguan Christian Academy (NCA). This past March, I found a way to turn my passion for basketball into something that benefits our community. I created a basketball camp for underprivileged children. With the support of my friends, teachers, and NCA community, we are rolling up our sleeves to make a difference. I would like to offer you an opportunity to touch the lives of eighty children from Zacarías Guerras orphanage. The NCA basketball team, which consists of eighteen mature high school students, 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 culminating in a competitive tournament in October. Each practice will begin with small group sessions in which we will grow closer to the children and take the opportunity to share our own experience with Christ. We would like to contribute to the orphanage the tools to continue to foster training in basketball. With the aid of many generous sponsors, we will paint and provide new nets for the basketball courts, buy customised 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 2,100 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, and I hope to count on your support in contribution of any amount however large or small.
