The Padrino Program for Health and Education

padrinoprogram

Here is what your generous donation could provide for a child in Limon 1, Tola, Nicaragua:

  • With a US$25 per month donation for one year, one student could afford to purchase two sets of school uniforms and the necessary books, backpack and school supplies to fully engage in her school experience.
  • With a US$50 a month donation for an entire year, one student could afford to purchase two sets of school uniforms and the necessary books, backpack, school supplies, as well as an entire year of healthcare protection including a bi-monthly visit to our clinic, medicine as needed, nutritional assistance with vitamins and supplements, and a vaccination program. This level of giving provides a student with the comprehensive resources needed to succeed in school and beyond.

Sponsorship Changes the Lives of Children and Their Sponsors

Through one-on-one sponsorships, our Padrino Program creates meaningful connections and lasting relationships. The resulting friendships turn human compassion into real-world solutions, giving supporters like you a glimpse into the joy your gifts make possible.

When you begin your sponsorship, you'll see the tangible effects of your generosity in a child's daily life. You will celebrate his or her progress and share in the share in the struggles and triumphs of childhood.

How the Program Works

Two times a year our program coordinator will communicate by email about the progress he or she is making in school. These messages will also include a report from the doctor on the child’s current developmental and nutritional status. You can get your child's picture and share personal information, encouragement and inspiration that you believe will help the child to grow as a person and to improve his or her performance at school.

We can also set up a Skype video conference with your sponsored child so you can practice your Spanish and help your child to learn basic English. This virtual visit is a life-changing experience for our Padrinos and children on this commmunity. You not only will be the sole sponsor for this disadvantaged child, but also a mentor and role model. Your credit card will be charged monthly for the amount you choose.  You can cancel your monthly donation at any time by contacting us, no problem.  At that time we will find a new sponsor for your child. At the end of the year we will send you a donation summary receipt for your tax filing.

The Roberto Clemente Health Clinic serves as a positive agent for change by saving lives, improving health and making low cost and free medicine available for those most in need.

We are located in a remote area in southwest Nicaragua, - Limon1 - close to Costa Rica, and approximately 12,000 patients  come to the clinic each year.

Your contributions are vital to the continued success of our efforts. 


volunteerabroadnicaragua1While it may be hard to imagine the impact that your financial contribution may have to such a distant community, every dollar helps us to pay for the medical, administative, and logistic costs.  Whether it’s $5, $50, $500 or $5,000, your contribution will make a difference.

Donating only takes a minute, but will have a long-lasting effect on the people of Nicaragua.

You can also volunteer abroad with us, enjoying a nice vacation and doing some public health education in our community.

We constantly welcome volunteers who come to practice what they’ve learned in medical school, doctors and specialists who come to treat patients with special illnesses and many more people who are not medically trained, but just want to help us with our public health care mission.

 

Volunteering in Nicaragua is very easy. You do not necessarily need to be in the healthcare sector to join our program. We also provide opportunities for people in other fields, such as social work, law, and education.


If you a
re looking for an international volunteer experience and wish to make a positive contribution to humanity, there is no better place than our health clinic.
