Areas of Impact

Poverty is complex, and poverty reduction requires holistic solutions. That’s why we’ve designed programs that respond to spiritual, physical and economic needs. With Christ’s love as the motivation for all that we do, we target the areas that are most critical to overall wellbeing. Sharing the love of God in both word and deed, we seek to make lasting changes in the lives of thousands of children, adolescents and adults.

A Mother’s Hard Work

Darling Díaz is a mother of four beautiful children, including her son with special needs named Marlon. Marlon’s condition requires continual treatment, and Darling’s husband’s job is not very stable, so meeting just the basic needs of their family is a constant struggle. We’ve been walking alongside her family for several years now helping to meet critical needs and guiding them towards self-sufficiency.

“Last year, I was able to get a job through Rayo de Sol to help me cover my household costs. I participated in a vocational education program and was able to get a job. Rayo de Sol continues to help me, but now I can cover some of my children’s costs with what I earn from my hard work. I’m very grateful for the opportunities I’ve had through Rayo de Sol these past few years. It has definitely changed my life and the life of my family.”

Juan Carlos’ Story

“My name is Juan Carlos, and I am 19 years old. A few years ago, my life felt pretty meaningless, and I was caught in a life full of different vices. But in those most difficult moments, the Rayo de Sol team offered me a scholarship to start attending high school. I wasn’t too excited, but I decided to try it out. When I started to get more involved in the Rayo de Sol scholarship program, I became a lot more excited to continue my studies and create a different future for myself.”

A few years ago, Juan Carlos started taking carpentry courses through Rayo de Sol. He now leads the Rayo de Sol carpentry workshop, has graduated high school, and is currently studying in college. We are tremendously grateful for the transformation that God has accomplished in his heart!

A Family Held Together

Marbelly is a single mother who lives with her three daughters in the Nuevo Amanecer neighborhood. Since the social and political crisis that affected Nicaragua in 2019, she has been struggling to cover the family’s basic needs. With so little formal employment available, she decided it was time to start her own business. Six months ago, she came to our office to request a loan, and her life changed dramatically.

“This business kept my family together,” she told us. “If I hadn’t gotten a loan from Rayo de Sol, I would have had to go to Costa Rica to find work as a maid, like so many other women in my community. I am so grateful to be earning enough money to support my children. This is truly a blessing for my family.”
