Program History:

December of Dreams began as a child’s dream to help the kids left behind in poverty. It grew out of gratitude for that entire God has given me but it was not always this way. My single mother of seven children was very poor unable to sometimes feed her first six children. With hard work she began a business and purchased a house and then another. When the civil war began my mother realized her children's life was in danger so we fled to the United States via emigrating through Central America. I can relate to the children who have nothing because I lived it while emigrating through Guatemala. When in Nicaragua I played with expensive toys while in Guatemala I played with sticks and stones. After I crossed the Rio Grande I looked up at the Coyote and he said "This is America the land of where dreams come true. In that moment, when I was five years old, I said I will go back and help the poor children of Nicaragua and the places I passed through (Central America and Mexico). When I was graduating college in 2005, I asked 12 friends to go with me to Nicaragua and hand deliver toys and school supplies. We ended up helping 1,350 children and named the project December of Dreams for Kids of Nicaragua.
