Help support our Discipleship & Education Program!
THRIVE is all about Discipleship & Education – SuNica’s cornerstone project in Nicaragua. The program itself takes a holistic approach to the abundant life that Jesus speaks of in John 10:10. We believe educational support and opportunity coupled with robust spiritual mentorship can powerfully change a child’s life.
Reaching more kids in Nicaragua
We’ve expanded our Discipleship & Education Program to ultimately reach more kids! Shifting our model away from an exclusive focus on child sponsorship and toward an inclusive model focused on every child in each of the communities we serve. The two main reasons for this change are accessibility and cost. Our mission on the ground is not changing – we remain dedicated to discipling kids, helping them stay in school, and guiding them towards a career!
Your monthly impact in action
provides one student with school supplies, a uniform, and a backpack
provides one student access to SuNica Discipleship and Education support
sends two kids on a Sacred Forest Retreat
covers the transportation expense for one Discipleship team
We are grateful for your support, at any amount. For example, a donation of $25 covers one month of transportation and food costs for one college student. Or $1,000 provides a two-person staff team for one community. Your investment is going to help us disciple more kids and encourage them to stay in school and make it through college.
Your support helps us THRIVE
“Hello! I’m Esmirna and your THRIVE support makes it possible for me to make my life’s work about loving the girls in my small groups and helping them know and follow Jesus.”
Impacting discipleship coordinators/staff
“Your support made it possible for me to go through SuNica’s Pre-Leadership classes. Now, I’m a SuNica leader in the community that I grew up in!”
“If not for my SuNica Scholarship, my family wouldn’t be able to afford the food and travel expenses so that I can attend university.”
Impacting university students
“SuNica provides my kids with almost everything they need to go to school and be successful. This is so helpful, that I might just be able to get my kids through Secondary school. And then who knows, perhaps University.”
Providing school supplies, uniforms, backpacks
“Not only does SuNica provide tutoring, but they even gave me the chance to spend a semester tutoring my own peers in the Community Center, so that kids in the program could reinforce what they were learning.”
“Mentoring and Discipleship are used interchangeably around here. When we talk about mentoring, we’re specifically talking about mentoring people in the ways of Jesus. Even with our water projects. Disciple-making is a key feature and byproduct of discipleship. It truly is the whole mission.”
Impacting mentorship and discipleship
“We open up the scriptures every week and I’m always amazed at the insight and how the Bible is relevant – even today. Your support makes it possible. ”
Impacting small group bible studies
“I’m so grateful for the amazing places that SuNica takes us. The Sacred Forest is one of those, but they also take us to the Cerro Negro Volcano, which I had never experienced before. ”
