Organizational Donors & Implementation Partners
Some of our most active organizational donors and implementation partners are listed below. These organizations play a vital role in our success. We are deeply grateful to be working with them to bring about positive change in the communities we serve.
American Nicaraguan Foundation (ANF)
The American Nicaraguan Foundation is the leading social services foundation in Nicaragua. Fabretto’s work is one of over 300 projects that it supports with medicine, food, clothes and school supplies. ANF also plays an instrumental role in assisting Fabretto to get its donations of in-kind goods to Nicaragua with its large receiving warehouse in Managua.
Breedlove Dehydrated Foods
Breedlove, itself a 501(c)(3) not for profit, is a dehydration plant and packaging operation that is dedicated to providing nutritious and wholesome dehydrated vegetable products to hunger and famine relief projects in the United States and around the world. It is the first large-scale vegetable processing plant in the world devoted to feeding hungry people. Breedlove annually gifts Fabretto with a generous donation of its dehydrated vegetable soup mix which, when mixed with water, forms the base for stews, soups and other menu selections used in Fabretto’s lunch program.
As one of the world's most important food processors, Cargill has tremendous capacity to make an impact in developing nations, such as Nicaragua. Cargill provides cash and in-kind support for our school-lunch program, including donating flour, sugar and other commodities that Fabretto uses in its center and school kitchens.
The Cashel Foundation supports us with an annual grant to underwrite the tuition expenses of some of our university and vocational education students. Cashel’s long standing relationship with Fabretto has allowed many young men and women to pursue their goals of becoming professionals in their chosen fields of study.
The mission of Cross International is to help the suffering poor worldwide. In order to be most effective in this mission Cross International seeks out existing programs serving the poor for distribution of material aid. In so doing, Fabretto has been a most fortunate recipient of their in-kind gifts of food, medicine, furniture, school and hygiene supplies. Their vastly comprehensive support of our programs is helping toward our shared goal to break the cycle of poverty in Nicaragua.
Feed My Starving Children
FMSC provides containers of MannaPack, dehydrated food mix that is high in nutrients and essential vitamins. Incorporated into our shcool lunch program, this product has become an important component of Fabretto's overall nutrition program.
Comparte is a child sponsorship organization based in Spain that provides support for over 2,300 children in Fabretto’s programs at our center in Cusmapa. A committed partner to our work in Nicaragua, their sponsors provide the funding needed to keep these children enrolled in school so that they can become productive, employable adults.
National Geographic Society
The National Geographic Society has generously donated hundreds of used computers, desks, chairs, office and educational equipment to Fabretto through its corporate recycling program. The receipt of these in-kind gifts has been a major factor in our ability to build our computer labs at our five program centers and outfit new classrooms and office space as we expand our program offerings.
Tin Roof Foundation
The Tin Roof Foundation, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, has been instrumental in many facets of Fabretto’s work. The foundation has provided funds for the expansion of classrooms, lunch halls and playing fields. It is also an important sponsor of our college and vocational education scholars.
United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
USAID’s mission is to provide economic and humanitarian assistance “from the American people” to more than 100 countries for a better future for all. The Fabretto Children’s Foundation is a registered Private Volunteer Organization with USAID and we have been the recipient of various grants intended to implement USAID’s vision in Nicaragua.
