A Smile for a Child at Christmas

A Smile for a Child at Christmas - NicaraguaThe 'Smile for a Child' program is intended to bring a smile to thousands of children’s faces at Christmas time in Nicaragua. In a country as poor as Nicaragua, this program brings joy to thousands of children each year.

Started in 2001, thousands of generous and loving people have made it possible to distribute now over 10,000 Christmas boxes to children across several regions of Nicaragua each year! In 2012 alone - with the help of so many of you - we were able to distribute 11,036 Smile boxes! Every year has been a success but we need your help to keep it going! Download our new Smiles brochure (3MB); start a campaign in your church or neighborhood; send it to your familiy and friends; and help us reach just one more!


Serving Children

The mission started in 1998 helping 18 children go to school. Today, the Mission operates 27 schools with 47 classrooms with over 2,700 children enrolled. The children in the mission's schools also receive food, medical/dental care, parasite medicine, vitamins and other services. A school can be supported for $350 per month and a child for $30 per month. All of the mission's schools are Certified by the Ministry of Education and all the teachers are certified teachers or individuals completing their teaching practicum.  Our goal remains the same in 2015 as it was in 1998: to be able to send “Just One More!” Can you help?
