    This is the Building that houses 35 boys and young men from 10 years up to graduating school. This first picture is of the little office of the caretaker of the building.



    THE FOLLOWING ARE SOME SHOTS OF WHERE THE GUY'S SLEEP







    THIS IS A PICTURE OF THE KITCHEN WHERE THEIR FOOD IS PREPAIRED AND BEHIND ME ARE THE PICNIC STYLE MESS TABLES WHERE THEY EAT.



    THIS IS THE TV ROOM OF THE GIRLS BUILDING, THE LITTLE BOYS STAY HERE TILL THEY ARE 10 AND ARE PLACED IN WITH THE OLDER BOYS.







    THIS IS WHERE AND WITH WHAT THE DAILY RICE AND BEANS ARE COOKED FOR THE KIDS. THERE ARE 52 CHILDREN RESIDING IN THE GIRLS BUILDING AT THIS TIME





    YOU GUESSED IT MAJOR COOkING IS DONE THE OLD FASHIONED WAY.... WITH STOVE WOOD..



    THE RESIDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO WASH THEIR OWN CLOTHES AND THIS IS ONE OF FOUR PLACES FOR THE PORPUSE



    THIS IS A PIC OF MY YOUNGEST IN HER PRESCHOOL CLASSES THERE.... THIS SCHOOL HAS ABOUT 400 STUDENTS WHICH NOT ONLY GIVES THE KIDS MORALE EDUCATION ALONG WITH THE BASICS, BUT HELPS ECONOMICLY THE ORPHNANAGE A BIT TOO.





    I WILL GIVE YOU THE e mail address for the pastor Mr. Earl Bowie (no family of the late Miskito Alan) just in case you to would like to get involved with this worth while effort...

    And on the start of this in Califorina the original post...

    Hi John,

    Thank you very much for posting the pics and info on the orphanage. Can you please email me Mr.Bowie's email address to MarnyHohl@hotmail.com. I would love the opportunity to speak with him and help out in whatever way we can.

    Thanks again for everything!

    Marny

    They are involved in 5 different sites at present... I don't think this is one of them... btw, the 5 sites were started by a Texan named Scott Felder... he splits his time between running construction projects in the Lone Star State and making homes for needy kids in Nicaragua....
    Thanks for sharing the pics JW.... Like I said before... you are one of the most interesting people I've never met!

    I don't know if you are asking JW or me but I know of several orphanages in an around Granada that are run by nuns who could use financial help. I think I can get you an email address if you'd like. Can you read and write spanish?

    Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness.

    It don´t matter where you help, but do, find a need and fill it....(We all need a few points in the hereafter)....
