THE STORY:

When you hear the words “hunger”, “war”, “AIDS”, “human trafficking”, what do you think? How do those words make you feel? -- Helpless? Hopeless? Do you want to make a difference? Many of us do want to make a difference in the world, but in order to make changes, we have to DO something about it. 

UNITE is a group of middle, high school and college students that come to together to UNITE for a cause!  Our 2015 focus is hunger - and we are coming together to FEED THE THOUSAND. 

Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere behind Haiti and is home to approximately 6 million people who live under impoverished conditions.

48% of Nicaraguans live below the poverty line. 23% of children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic under nutrition. 79.9% of Nicaraguans live on less than $14 a week, which is less than what we might pay for something like dinner and a movie.

THE PROJECT
Our goal is to have 300 students each raise $120, enabling us to utilize $36,000 in funds that will feed 1000 children per week for an entire year. This will also supply us with the tools to build a feeding center in Nicaragua that can last a lifetime. 

This is an opportunity to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. We need our generation to learn how to make a difference in the world around us, change the tide, and transform our culture. The greatest world changers in history have to start somewhere, and our FEED THE THOUSAND cause for this year… it’s just the beginning.
