Become a Partner

Build a house to shelter a family in need. When $4,800 becomes concrete, rebar, cement block, and sheet metal, you literally answer a family’s basic prayer: safe and secure housing. Learn how it works on the housing page.

Fund a Physician. Despite logging hundreds of thousands of miles each year delivering care to our seven networks, Rainbow Network’s team of physicians still cannot meet the total need. If you would like to fund a doctor, please email us at info@rainbownetwork.org or call us at 417.889.8088 to discuss.

For $25,000, Rainbow Network will:

  • Hire an additional physician for one year
  • Provide all needed medications and supplies for 12 months
  • Cover transportation costs for two dozen visits to 20 villages during the year

Sponsor a Village. Partnering with a village has endless possibilities, supporting medical clinics, feeding centers, schools, and micro-loan banks. Please note that programs can be rearranged, but building levels within the same community is encouraged over sponsoring one program in multiple communities. Become a village partner to change lives in rural Nicaragua as well as those in your congregation as you create Christ-like relationships through trips and ongoing correspondence!

Level 1 – $5,000 per year

  • Supply food for every child, pregnant or nursing mom, and elder.

Level 2 - $10,000 per year

  • Supply food for every child, pregnant or nursing mom, and elder.
  • Support the primary schools through supplies and teacher training.

Level 3 - $15,000 per year

  • Supply food for every child, pregnant or nursing mom, and elder.
  • Support the primary schools through supplies and teacher training.
  • Finance the micro-loan program for ongoing economic development.

Level 4 - $20,000 per year

  • Supply food for every child, pregnant or nursing mom, and elder.
  • Support the primary schools through supplies and teacher training.
  • Finance the micro-loan program for ongoing economic development.
  • Maintain healthcare through a Rainbow Network physician and medicines.

(The cost of village sponsorship can be split between individuals, congregations, or organizations if necessary. Call us at 417.889.8088 or email us at info@rainbownetwork.org to discuss the options available to sponsor.)

Build a Community. El Trapiche. Granadillo. Hato Grande. Hilapo Dos. Los Fierros.
Today, in these communities, villages have bloomed. Where there once was only a collection of tarpaper shacks, now a community is growing around a cluster of cement block houses. In these villages, new hope has been planted by caring groups –both large and small– here in the U.S.

If you have the desire to make a dramatic short-term impact on such a community, building a village is the answer. With a 2-3 year commitment of $125,000, your group, congregation, or corporation will fund and build 25-30 houses, complete with sanitation and electrical capacity. Email info@rainbownetwork.org to schedule a presentation for your group.

Provide Gifts in Kind to transform lives with products we often take for granted. If you are with an organization that offers goods or services that may be of use in Nicaragua, call 417-889-8088 or email info@rainbownetwork.org to discuss giving opportunities and maximize your aid efficiency. Examples of past gifts include vitamins, medical equipment, bicycles, agricultural goods, and ultrasound training.

Please be aware that, in the unpredictable social environment in Central America, prices fluctuate wildly due to inflation, supply factors, and political change. When planning long-term fundraisers, please contact us for projections and strategy to ensure your greatest success.
