Jesus calls all of us to service...
Hi my name is Kirk Guillory and I live in Lake Charles, Louisiana. My mission is to collect enough money to build a village, school, and a water well. I will keep you informed each step of the way. You can check back to this page to see total funds and pictures of progress. You can also follow our progress on Facebook.

La Concordia, Jinotega, Nicaragua
The St Peter Claver Village of Hope project will underwrite the cost of constructing 20 double-unit houses that include sanitation and water.
The project also includes building a two-room school with sanitation facilities. Through the Nicaragua Housing Match Program, which was developed to address the critical housing shortage in Nicaragua, each single-unit house that Food For The Poor constructs will result in the construction of a corresponding single unit, thus creating a double-unit home consisting of two bedrooms, a living room, a personal sanitation unit, and water component.
About the problem:
La Concordia is a municipality of the department of Chinandega. Over 100 miles away from the country’s capital city, Managua,
> It has a population of about 7,832 inhabitants.
> The daily income is less than US$2.00 per day.
> Extended families of five and more are often found to squeeze into one room.
> There is no indoor plumbing or sewage system.
Poor drainage quickly turns heavy rainfall into flooding, in an instant transforming the area into an at-risk zone. Residents’ houses will wash away and they are left to rebuild again. And this cycle repeats itself each year.
