Fiesta Fundraiser Nets $9,000!
Our Fiesta fundraiser held in Cockeysville, MD, on Oct. 5, raised more than $9,000 for our Staff Fund! This support helps us to provide increased mentoring and guidance to the 23 children and young adults in our program, ensuring that they have the positive, encouraging support necessary to develop into confident, selfless leaders.
The Fiesta featured live music, food, beverages, a silent auction, and an opportunity for attendees to learn more about VISEDAL’s work in Nicaragua. Thank you to our wonderful sponsors, volunteers, and attendees for making the event such a smashing success!

Casa VISEDAL, Our New Facility!
We are so excited to announce that we have started renting a facility! Earlier this year, we held various activities in a nearby ministry center. Chi Alpha ministry was nice enough to allow us to use their building for hosting activities on Saturdays. We have since decided to rent a small office from them, along with a large garage bay with space for tables and chairs. There is a spacious patio as well, and we were able to use it for our Grand Opening party this past Saturday. We have also contracted a psychologist, who is using the office for one-on-one meetings with the scholars. This is a big step for us and we are so excited to see the impact we will have on the lives of our scholars through this facility!
Check Out Our 2013 Annual Report!

For example, this page has more information about how sponsors can now send their scholars a letter and/or a picture at any time through our Sponsor-Scholar Connection Program.
