Alternative Gifts – the Gifts That Keep On Giving
Looking for a different way to give the gift of Christmas? You can do this through our Alternative Gifts Program–you can fund a pig, cow or chicken for a family in Nicaragua.
In northwestern Nicaragua, more than 70% of rural children have intestinal parasites, which will cause malnutrition. Simple hygiene, that we take for granted, can prevent this from happening. You can provide a Nicaraguan family a water-seal toilet and a shower with running water through the Modern Bathroom Project.
We’re also helping to fund the Clean Air Kitchen Project, which helps to eliminate a major source of respiratory issues for the people of Nicaragua. And we are also providing opportunity to fund the school, La Chuscada. This is the school our missionaries worked on last summer.
