Dear PHFM Community,

The remote people of Nicaragua's Rio Grande are embracing and celebrating new opportunities to learn and grow. So we are thrilled to report on the following educational initiatives and milestones:

  • Our Alfanic program celebrates its first graduation as 82 students proudly complete their programs of study and are promoted to new levels of instruction. Alfanic uses trained community volunteers to teach adults and youth who are working to finish their primary school education.
  • We wrap up our final training session for community health promotors in the village of Anglo America and celebrate by awarding certificates and gifts of appreciation. These promoters have been trained to lead their communities in healthy practices in regard to water, hygiene and sanitation.
  • Two community leaders travel to Managua to participate in a workshop on farming and agricultural methods. They are excited to implement what they have learned through pilot projects and to teach others in their community.

We are thankful for God's blessing on our work and your partnership and support, which makes our service to these communities possible. Donations are welcome and can be made through our website or by check sent to our address below.

Blessings and thank you!

Roger Drost and Peter Coleman
