- Nicaraguan Orphan Fund
The Nicaraguan Orphan Fund is a CIO that cares for specific Nicaraguan communities of children who are emotionally and financially impoverished. Each year, we make a trip down to Managua, Nicaragua over spring break, where University students interact with and love children from orphanages, refugee camps, and dump communities. This trip exposes students to severe poverty, and gives them the opportunity to radically love these children by building relationships and through fundraising organized State-side to raise money and awareness for the restoration of these children's lives.
