Saturday´s sky was clearer, but the heat and humidity still hung heavy over Managua. We drove up above the city, climbing over lush hillsides with views to volcanoes and lakes to San Marcos, a town with brightly painted houses, flowers in the parks, and people at the markets. Here, ProNica is one of many supporters of Los Quinchos, a multinational project to care for and build futures for former street children. Children, ages 5-18, make bracelets and hammocks to sell, run a wonderful restaurant and internet cafe, raise farm animals, and tend gardens. Outside of San Marcos, they live in safety, away from the violence, drugs, and disease of the municipal dump in Managua, where they had scavenged for food and recyclables to sell. At Los Quinchos, they can play, go to school and grow healthy.
