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.
I live in the community of Santa Ana with my family. This year I am starting a new stage in my studies, the high school, which is located in another rural community. I know it will be a great change and a challenge at the same time, but I trust in myself and I am sure I can overcome it to continue achieving goals in my personal life.
I like classes that contain more practice than theory and I believe I am better at learning this way.
In my free time I help my dad to graze the cows, we have a cow and a calf, and I also help my dad to cut grass in the field to feed the cows.
My hobbies include watching Ball Z dragon movies, I am passionate about fishing and I have fun going fishing with my dad. I usually catch 10 to 12 fish and we use them for family meals.
I describe myself as a thrown teenager, hardworking, I like to live in the country, I consider myself quite reserved when I do not know people.
