The Dios con Nosotros Student Center is a true voice of hope to 233 Compassion-registered children in the impoverished neighborhoods of Jinotepe, Nicaragua.
Poverty relentlessly proclaims to a child’s heart that “you are worthless, you won’t amount to anything.” The sponsorships and letters of encouragement from Heartland Community Church members to these children are helping to break that cycle. Yet the hands-on work is happening at the center where there is abundant laughter, smiles and singing.
Dios con Nosotros Student Center is run by a local church, Iglesia Centro Cristiano Emanuel, and is a fun environment where children find love, encouragement, a daily hot meal, additional education (beyond the half day in public school), health checkups and treatment, and the good news of Jesus’ love for them and their families.
The public school is a short walk down the road and more students could be reached if the center just had more classrooms to accommodate them.
With your help, two more classrooms can be built at this center with concrete blocks, mortar, rebar and yes...wet cement.
