ABOUT OUR SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
When you sponsor a child with Empowerment International, it's personal. Your sponsored child is not just a number, we have a relationship with them, and you will too. Three times a year you will hear from your child. You are always welcome to write to them too, they really enjoy it when you do! As a matter of fact, you are welcome to meet them if you are in Nicaragua. By sponsoring a child, you are ascertaining that they have a spot in our program. Each year they receive school supplies, uniforms, shoes, tuition (for older kids if applicable), emotional and physical healthcare as needed, tutoring after school, home visits, access to all of our clubs such as reading, computers, dance, photography, soccer, art, and biking. These kids become a part of the EI family and feel they have a second home with us. As long as the student maintains our program requirements, they will be a part of our program throughout their educational career. It's no longer unusual for students to start at a young age in our program and graduate from high school or even enter the university.
Jeimi is a very reserved young woman, with many social values that have been part of her growth and instilled by her parents. Jeimy is currently in her 10th grade and travels about 10 kms every day to attend her studies.
She has been in the program for 8 years and enjoys participating in youth groups that address issues of interest to teenagers.
Her dream is to go to college and study medicine to become a cardiologist and help people in her community since everyone has little access to medical care and medicines.
