Sponsors support a child with a $20 a month donation which covers two school uniforms and pairs of shoes, a book bag and all school supplies for the year. It also includes a small monthly stipend for the family.
Interested in sponsoring a child? You may choose a child from the list below. You can donate online, or by sending a check to Compas de Nicaragua, 5 Rogers Street, Plymouth, NH 03264. In the check memo, or under 'message of support' on our online donation page, please write “sponsorship” and the name of the child if you have a preference. Please also include your e-mail address, so that we can contact you with updates about your sponsored child.
Compas will update you 3 times a year with pictures and letters, as well as videos of your sponsored child. You may send your own pictures and letters via e-mail (email@example.com) and we will share them with your sponsored child.
