Ceiba Blanca CarePoint
Ceiba Blanca is a village of about 900 people. There is no high school in the village, so most children only complete the 6th grade and begin to work at a young age to help support their families. Most in the community have informal and seasonal jobs, leaving families with low and inconsistent income. Due to the economic situation and lack of access to nutritious food, children are malnourished. Mision El Cristo de Nazareth (Mission the Church of Christ of Nazareth) is a local evangelical church that saw the need to help the youth of the village, so they began by implementing a VBS program. The members of the church are invested in their community to improve the lives of the children and their families.
With the partnership of the Immanuel Lutheran Church and School, the children at Pueblo Modelo CarePoint have the opportunity to grow physically, spiritually, and emotionally while the Immanuel Lutheran Church and School community also experiences positive transformation!

Empower a Child at Ceiba Blanca
Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.
Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.

Start a Fundraiser for Ceiba Blanca
HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.
A fundraiser for Ceiba Blanca CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.
