Computer Training for Deaconesses and Children

This program and its materials and resources, including nearly 200 laptop computers, are largely funded and led by a Canadian volunteer, significantly reducing the overall costs. Your support is needed to help the deaconesses and students reach the Chinandega mission centre and its computer lab, and also to allow volunteers to travel to church communities to provide on-site computer training.

Children’s Education Program

This valuable ministry, provided at the churches by the deaconesses and pastors, offers tutoring in mathematics, Spanish, science, and, most importantly, lessons from the Word of God. Funding is needed to ensure that the 60 children attending the program in 2020 will have the backpacks, notebooks, and educational resources needed for each child’s scholarship.

Deaconess Support

There are currently 27 faithful deaconesses who provide Christian education to women, youth and children, organize feeding programs, and visit their church members and those in need. This project is to provide an additional $20 monthly stipend to assist with transportation and expenses during a time of political turbulence and resulting financial strains.

Several youth retreats are held each year; these have become great opportunities for nurturing the youth of Cartago in God’s Word.

Community Children’s Feeding Programs

$1.50 can provide a substantial and healthy meal for a child in any community in Nicaragua. There are groups of anywhere from 40 to 80 children in each of the Central American feeding programs where the children hear Bible studies and learn the Small Catechism. A deaconess and pastor lead the programs while the children are fed once or twice a week. The funding goal for the project has increased this year to allow even more children to access the program.
