    Project Overview

    Cienaga is a banana farming and fisherman community of 100K with an average income of $308 monthly. This school has grown to a capacity of 620 current students. The next phase of development includes building and equipping a third and final level of the school to provide an opportunity for 200 additional students. Contact us if you want to come help finish this project.

    In order to build, we need team members to come alongside these efforts. No one should be expected to work alone, and that includes our missionaries in the field. Builders International is in place to come alongside them and be a network of teams and resources to help complete these projects and move them toward greater effectiveness in their area. For this to happen we need more people to pick up a hammer, to make the leap to the other side of the world, and to enjoy the life changing experience of being a part of the team. Sign up now to get away and start your international adventure.

    Project Funds Needed

    As you extend your financial resources to this project, you not only meet the need in this area, but provide great encouragement to the missionaries and people working toward this effort. The effect is widespread. Not only does it make a huge impact on those directly involved, but it ripples out and penetrates deep into the surrounding community. When our hearts are moved together to do something, giving is a natural response. We give of our time, ourselves, our skill, our physical abilities and of our financial resources. In unique cases like this, the dividends are huge and make lasting changes. Thank you for sharing what you've been given!
