An acquaintance told me about the Fabretto Foundation and I visited the website. I decided to sponsor a child and have been so happy I did. A little goes a long way in changing a child's life. It is easy to sponsor a child and send meaningful gifts to her through the website. The people at Fabretto are so helpful and responsive when I have questions. Some day I hope to visit but in the meantime I know I am making a difference.

I had the pleasure of visiting schools of the Fabretto foundation in Nicaragua, it was a wonderful experience. Kevin is truly passionate and its evident in his work he's done with the foundation. I could see, first hand, the impact that the foundation was having on the rural communities of Nicaragua. I highly encourage people to reach out and aid in their mission.

I volunteered with Fabretto in 2009. It was the most professional, meaningful and impactful volunteer assignments I have had. The Executive Director is a visionary and knows how to leverage resources to achieve great things for the communities Fabretto supports.

I visited the Fabretto offices in Nicaragua in February this year. I was very impressed. I also visited one of their schools. I met the child I sponsor. It was a humbling and wonderful experience. I saw first hand the work Fabretto supports. The need is great specially now with the political situation affecting all areas of this beautiful country.

Getting involved with Fabretto the past few years has been such an enriching experience. I sponsor two amazing children, and was lucky enough to visit the Zach C library in San Juan de Oriente to spend time with them. During my visit, Fabretto ensured we had a safe, fun, and enlightening trip - learning so much about this inspiring organization and the joy and value they bring to Nicaragua. I look forward to continued involvement with Fabretto and to visiting Nicaragua again some day!

We worked on the ground with Fabretto to install solar lighting in remote homes in Nicaragua. The Fabretto staff displayed an exceptional level of professionalism, compassion and dedication to the beneficiaries. In all they do, there is an underlying focus on the education of children.

Not only does Fabretto meet daily needs of children, youth and families for education and nutrition in rural Nicaragua, but it develops local leaders, teachers and community workers--the best kind of development work! In addition it welcomes and hosts work teams and visitors to help create bonds of understanding and cross-cultural relationships. They communicate their work, goals and achievements clearly and with greatest respect for the people of Nicaragua.

A local staff team responded to our church's request to help with a pilgrimage to follow in the footsteps of Father Fabretto. With great care and dedication they helped us achieve our goal--building bridges of relationships and a sustaining connection.
This is a truly excellent organization doing amazing work in difficult circumstances.

The heart of this organization is truly love for the children and for Nicaragua. Everything they do is to help these kids have a future in which they are strong and independent. I know personally that those heading the efforts are true sacrificial soldiers - always fighting for the kids.

I support Fabretto because they’re helping Nicaragua during such difficult times and plus, the fact that you send handwritten letters to thank your donors for their support, lets me know that I’m dealing with people committed to help this great cause.

The degree of poverty and lack of educational resources remains devastating for the beautiful children of Nicaragua. Thank goodness for the wonderful , caring individuals at Fabretto who are able to shed light on the conditions in Nicaragua and work tirelessly to advocate for charitable giving and awareness of the needs of these innocent children.
