I was a journalist for years, often covering nonprofits, including The Rainbow Network. I was so impressed that I became a supporter. I have traveled to Nicaragua to see what they do and came away amazed. The holistic programs, all run by Nicaraguans on staff, change lives in so many ways, and each changed life (whether it is through education, healthcare, housing or economic development) changes the entire community, which in turn is changing the country. And learning that they spend less than 10 percent of the budget on administrative expenses made becoming a donor a no brainer!
We just attended the 20th Anniversary Celebration Rainbow Network had. It is amazing how much what they have accomplished in the past 20 years in rural Nicaragua. Seeing the pictures of those lives being changed and the stories of lives changed with so little, just amazes me.
I definitely recommend anyone that wants to be a part of changing lives (not only others but yours too) go on one of their trips to see the works of Rainbow Network in action. You will never be the same!
What a wonderful experience I have had the last 4 years as a sponsor of a young lady in NIcaragua! Through letters to and from her and a mission trip there and meeting her in person, I have been blessed by God's love over and over. Knowing I have helped someone receive an education has enriched my life as well as hers. Rainbow Network is an organization like none other; I thank them for what they do. Now, I am starting the same experience with another student in the same area. I hope to begin communication with him soon. With God's guidance, my life and his will be rewarding.
I sponsor two students through Rainbow Network. The personal connection is tremendous and the knowledge that my gift is making an incredible difference is a blessing to me. The idea that I am not just helping these two children, but their whole family for generations is amazing. I encopurage everyone to check out the Rainbow Network and to get involved.
