8,000,000 CHILDREN WILL DIE OF POVERTY THIS YEAR
Madres de Nicaragua is a charity that is saving the lives of poor children in Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the western hemisphere. We do this by paying single mothers who are poor to raise them above the poverty level, and ensure their children receive adequate vaccinations and education. Each mother receives $80.00 and $20 for each child in school, plus $10 for transportation every month.
Madres de Nicaragua is a registered non-profit charitable organization that will generate income tax deduction receipts for donors.
We work directly with local Nuns in rural areas of Nicaragua, to identify prospective mothers, follow up with tracking and confirmation of prospective recipients. We transfer money directly to the mother’s bank accounts.
We work with financial institutions that will transfer funds at a reduced charge.
Recipient mothers are required to provide vaccination certificates and report cards of their children.
Donors are asked to sign Pre-authorized debit agreements to help automate the donation process for both chequing accounts and credit cards.
The monitoring of donations and the issuing of payments to mothers are done by volunteers, working with the bank, and the NGO, Bridges to Communities in Nicaragua.
Unlike other NGOs or charities, there is no overhead, no wages, salaries or expenses paid. All moneys donated go to recipients, except for minor fund transfer fees.
Fifty percent of all Nicaraguans live in extreme poverty
Thirty percent of the population 189,234 live on $2.00 per day or less.
Poverty is the worst in the rural areas.
One third of all households in Nicaragua are led by single mothers.
We are asking you to donate $10.00 or more per month via Preauthorized Debit (PAD) or Credit Card authorization or one time donations of as much as you can afford. We will issue tax receipts at the end of the year. See how at the bottom of the web site.
We are working with an non government organization (NGO) in Nicaragua called Bridges to Community and they have been instrumental in helping where they can as they have an office in Siuna which is in central Nicaragua. Sister Juanita is in charge of a religious center, Missionary Sisters in Christ, in a community of Siuna called the Hormiguero. The nuns have agreed to help to do the screening process of possible recipients. We have also set up with the local bank Lafise, and they have agreed to help with the transfer of funds directly into bank accounts that we set up for the mothers. We have also set up with the Van City credit union to help with the transfer of funds and the receiving of donations.
We can’t save 8,000,000 children from poverty. We can save a few. They are children of the universe no less than the trees and the stars they have a right to be here. Every child matters. How would it make you feel to know you and your friends just saved the life of a child? What is the value of a childs' life
Will you donate $10.00/ month to save the life of a child?
more recipients will be added as time goes on
