"Thank you for the help you have given my family and the neighbourhood. With the high quality toilet and septic system installed by FUNDACCO, my family now enjoys better health. We are slowly eliminating the bad odors and the diseases caused by mosquitoes arising from the ponds, which are disappearing.”
Ana Maria, 2015 beneficiary, San Benito
Roots of Change Foundation undertakes activities and programs that help to reduce poverty in some of the poorest communities of Nicaragua.
We collaborate with our partner agent, FUNDACCO, a registered charity in Nicaragua, to identify, propose, manage, and facilitate projects funded by Roots of Change.
We raise funds in Western Canada by making informative presentations to groups and organizations, by engaging the public at meetings and markets, by selling Nicaraguan artefacts at craft fairs, and by hosting gala and family fundraising events. We also partner with schools and other groups who raise funds in support of Roots of Change projects in Nicaragua.
We offer two awards annually to offset the travel costs for two volunteers to work in Nicaraguan communities for two to three months..
Every year we organize mission trips to Nicaragua for supporters who wish to learn first-hand of the challenges faced by the poor and the way in which the Foundation's programs help to reduce poverty and bring hope for an improved quality of life to these people.
