BGAV has entered into a long-term community development strategy focused on lifting communities out of extreme poverty. This new partnership will be focused in the Chinandega region of Nicaragua with an organization new to us–Food for the Hungry (FH). This long-term
(7-10 year) endeavor will seek to build relationships in specific communities which will allow for incredible change to take place for those in Nicaragua as well as the sponsoring churches in Virginia.

Carlos, an employee of FH, was recently on a Zoom call with us and shared how he was raised in the sponsorship program of FH, and he and his family were able to break their cycle of poverty and now strive to help others living in extreme poverty. Our hope is that through this partnership we will be able to continue this good work and share the love of Christ in Nicaragua. Your gifts will provide funds for specific development opportunities such as new wells, sanitation needs, farming, and economic empowerment as identified through local leadership in Nicaragua.
