"CARMEN CASTRO PADILLA" CHILD PROTECTION CENTER
The objective of these child protection centers is to serve as a shelter during the day for the children that wonder through the streets.
In this center, the children will find nourishment, clothing, shoes, sports activities, school courses, medical and psychological attention which will allow them to break the cycle of dependency and will convert them into productive citizens in the future.
Every stage of the “Centro de Proteccion al Nino” has a cost of US$100,000 (one-hundred thousand dollars). The total construction of the first center is US$500,000 (five-hundred thousand dollars).
The members and volunteers of Abandoned Children in Nicaragua Foundation have worked arduously in the fundraising of money, and the organization has activities such as the Annual Christmas Luncheon and the raffle of a Honda vehicle that is realized every year in Southern California.
These efforts have collected a total of nearly US$200,000 that were used in the construction of the First Stage and the Second Stage of the Child Protection Center in Sabana Grande, near the city of Managua, Nicaragua.
