HOW TO HELP
Thank you for your support of MPowering People and our work in Nicaragua!
One of our greatest, ongoing needs is funding to sustain our projects and staff. You can support us by becoming a monthly donor or through a one-time donation. Please see below for more information on these two options.
Looking for other ways to stay involved? If you're interested in volunteering with us, please visit the Volunteer page for more information. Or, another great way to help is to tell your friends and family about us. When you share our work with others, you give them the chance to change a life - and you help us accomplish our mission of empowering people to learn, grow and build better lives for themselves.
HOW TO GIVE
Become a Padrino ("Godfather") or Madrina ("Godmother")
of our project.
Through our Padrino program, you can make a difference in the life of one of the children in our projects. It works like this: sponsors, or padrinos, make a monthly donation of 15 euros to support one child. This money ensures your sponsored child has the opportunity to go to school, by paying for all school fees and materials. We also work with padrinos to share letters back and forth with their sponsored children, so they can encourage them as they grow.
Please e-mail Philip Vertriest to become a Padrino or Madrina.
MAKE A DONATION
Support one of our programs with a special donation.
We always need and accept one-time donations. We use these donations to address immediate needs, such as emergency medical expenses for children in our programs. They also may be earmarked for a specific purpose, such as school materials or teachers’ salaries. Please e-mail Philip Vertriest to discuss your options and how to send donations.
Right now, we particularly need donations to support the construction of our new community center. We will dedicate a special brick in the center to each person who gives $250 or more!
We are committed to financial responsibility and transparency. Please e-mail us with questions about our not-for-profit status and how we allocate funds.
