Beauchamp Charity Foundation,
Hello, my name is Mary-Anne. This foundation is a great help to the kids of La Boquita. They excel in changing the kids' lives and making them happier every day. I stumbled upon this foundation when I was going on a trip to Nicaragua with my family. My son and daughter, Nick and Sophie, wanted to go surfing there, as they heard it was excellent, and we decided to go too, with my husband as well, Phillip. To take a break off of the stressful life of the city, as we are from New York. We weren't sure on where about in Nicaragua we were going to go, so we decided to look at some catalogues. We found one catalogue that showed La Boquita, and described it as a pretty fisherman town, amazing sunsets, poor, and best waves in Nicaragua! We had also heard that the world championships, paddle boarding was happening there. I know that this review is pretty long, but if you would read it all and get inspired by it, that would be amazing.
When we got to La Boquita, we were having a "radical" time. The kids were loving the beach and Phillip and I were really relaxed. While we were there, we heard about BEAUCHAMP CHARITY FOUNDATION, and we wanted to donate, as we had seen the poorness of La Boquita and wanted to make their life more fulfilled with happiness. When we met the owner of BEAUCHAMP CHARITY FOUNDATION, Monique Beauchamp, through Skype, she was very nice. We deposited a check to her and right away she gave it to the kids. We gave them clothes and toys and they were very happy. And so were we.
So if you get the chance to help the world, do it because if it makes your life better or someone else's, the question isn't why, it's why not? :D
My name is Donald Crissey and I have known Monique Beauchamp for the past 17 years and was pleased to be able to contribute to the Beauchamp Charity Foundation for the past 6 years. I have sponsored two children and have had continuous feedback from the Foundation as to the scholastic and social achievements that the Foundation has helped these children to attain. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to visit la Boquita and took the opportunity to check on the work of the Foundation and see first hand the opportunities it had provided for the children in this small community. One evening, I took a horse ride that took me high into the surrounding mountains and ended at the sandy spit of land adjacent to the large stream separating it from the town. There were a number of shanty type homes on this land. It was a primitive and somewhat impoverished environment and the small shelters were made of literally anything available to these poor people. The child I was sponsoring lived in one of these shelters with his family. I came upon an English speaking gentleman who directed me to his small home. The child's name was Ehrlin and when we called his name, he came out and I met him and through the help of this fellow was able to speak with Ehrlin. I was invited inside the home and met the father who was at the time helping Ehrlin with his homework. The shelter was lit by a bare lightbulb. There were virtually no comforts in this home and this child was thrilled to show me copies of his schoolwork and artwork he had done in class, that now served as the decorations of the shelter.
I was awestruck that my contribution of a a few hundred of dollars a year, could be of such help in educating this child. I was honored and humbled to be a small part of the work of the Foundation and can attest to the integrity and good efforts of Mrs. Beauchamp and her team. I plan to continue my support of the foundation and to anyone who has any doubts about the work of the Foundation or to the benefits it has brought to la Boquita and its children, I urge you to visit la Boquita and see first hand what has been achieved.
