MANAGUA, Nicaragua — Children need so much more than food and water to thrive, they also need a safe place to grow, laugh, learn and play.
Sponsors to Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, support three neighbourhoods in Managua, Nicaragua, where children are encouraged to develop their own unique skills, self-esteem and self-confidence through play.
Gabriel, a young soccer aficionado, is establishing relationships on the field. “[The activity] has also helped to eradicate gangs,” says the boy’s father. Meanwhile, Francela finds joy in dancing.
