BENEFITING: THE ORPHANETWORK
EVENT DATE: Mar 24, 2013
From March 24-30, I will be volunteering with a group of about 20 people from GraceCity, a church in Baltimore, at the Hogar Puente de Amistad orphanage near Managua, Nicaragua. We ar partnering with ORPHANetwork, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that works to prevent at-risk children from being abandoned, rescue abandoned children, and help them transition into adult life (http://www.orphanetwork.org/).
While there, our team will help out at two feeding centers in the area, educators from our group will work with teachers at the orphanage, our business team will work with the people involved in the microfinance program, and of course we will be spending time with the kids at the orphanage.
The trip costs a total of $1500, and GraceCity has generously given me $500 of financial aid. This leaves $1000 left for me to raise, and that is where you come in. I will appreciate anything you can donate to help me make this trip possible. Thank you for your support!
