I took a trip to Nicaragua to relax and unwind.  Typical reasons all about me.  What happened on that trip changed my life forever.  I met several families that live in plastic huts they call home.  They work OK in dry season, but the rainy season makes it very difficult to stay dry and warm.  I was able to help one family while I was there build a better shelter, but they still have inadequate toilet facilities.  I am returning in May to build at least 2 Outhouses and and at least one home for a family of four that are currently living in a similar plastic shelter with his father and mother in law.  They make their money by making and selling Hammocks to tourist like you and me.  Felix' 10 year old daughter helps make the hammocks and Felix and his father in law travel during the week to sell them for whatever they can get for food for the family.  Please take time to watch the video and you'll get the picture.

If we raise enough money we'll build at least 2 out houses and 1-2 shelters (homes).  If we have more then we'll build more.  Some money will be set aside for the educational costs of the children, as there is a small annual fee  in Nicaragua for children to go to school, and many times families have to choose between food and education. 

100% of anything raised will be given directly to the project. 

All travel fees etc I will cover on my own.  Your money will go directly to the families.

We will document everything that is done in a video, so you can see what changes you have made in the world.

Thank you in advance for your generous gifts.

Sincerely
Chris
