ABEX and The Precept Group are proud to be a part of Bridges to Community Canada’s initiative to build houses for impoverished families in Nicaragua.
To build a house that is safe, dry, and secure costs just $4,000! ABEX and Precept are excited to be able to sponsor a house for a family and make their everyday struggle a little easier.
As Rick Bauman of Bridges to Community Canada reflects: “Life to a typical Nicaraguan looks like 50% unemployment, a household income of less than $500 per year, and a home that wouldn’t qualify as a tool shed in your backyard or mine! And this is representative of how 80% of the people in the world live! ‘It’s a world of opportunity, yet I’m struggling to survive.’ You won’t likely ever hear those words spoken by a Nicaraguan – at least not those I’ve met, and I’ve met a few. They tend to be gentle, dignified people who are remarkably content with their lot in life.”
Bridges to Community Canada is a nonprofit organization that has built 115 homes for impoverished families in Nicaragua over the past five years. Over the next five, they aim to raise $1,000,000 to transform a Nicaraguan community.
Right now, they are building a school in El Sasle in northern Nicaragua that currently houses 180 kids in just two rooms. But soon, the school will be finished, and they’ll start building the 40 plus houses that this community desperately needs.
