Life-change is about people; it not just about changing someone's circumstances. Your personal involvement can impact not just someone's life, but it could even change your own. People matter to God! In the history of transformation, God has chosen to use people and experiences to re-direct people's lives. It goes beyond financial gifts - it's about seeing people through the eyes of God and walking in their shoes.
Below are several tangible ways to put your faith into action!
Your prayers make a difference! When we pray, we are talking to a God who cares, listens and takes action on our behalf. Join us and many more who are praying... (Prayer Guide coming soon)
Be a part of an Envía Experience in Costa Rica
We would love for you to meet the people we are working with and see our work first hand. We realize people are on different journeys in their life. At Envia, we are committed to customizing a specific experience for you and your group. We'd like to learn about you and the kind of experience you'd like to have. Together we can develop a high-impact experience for all involved.
Below are a few experiences we are putting together:
- Mother-daughther Experience
- Micro-finance Experience
- Training Experience
- Experience Christmas in Nicoya
Provide a Meal
The first step in reaching the community of San Martin of Nicoya is to feed the children. Currently, 152 children who participate in our feeding program. We are able to provide a nutirous meal for $1.00 per child. When in school a child recieves a government issued lunch. All other meals are up to their families. The weekends are the most challenging days of the week - this is why our feeding program takes place on Saturdays.
Providing one meal per week, has allowed us build solid, lasting relationships with many families in the community. It's also allowing families to remain togther (read more here). The feeding program is paving the way for the future implementation of new programs and initiatives.
You can provide a meal for 200 children once a week ($200 per week | $866 per month). You may give online or you can contact us for more information.
Throw a Birthday Party
Many of the 152 children (ages 1-12) in our program have never had a birthday party... They've never really been celebrated. Every month we celebrate the lives of the children born in that particular month. It's simple, yet significant. Even though you are thousands of miles away, you can help children not only celebrate their own lives, but each other's. (Find out more)
