Last year we opened 40 feeding Centers. This year, we are going to ensure those feeding centers don't close.
Since our first party in 2015 we have raised over $500,000 to establish and sustain feeding centers in Rivas, Nicaragua. 100% of Ignite the Night proceeds fund a program that provides daily meals to more than 3,500 at-risk children through a Nicaragua-based 501(c)3 nonprofit, ORPHANetwork. The program is located in the remote Region of Rivas Nicaragua. Hillier Ignite is committed to seeing this community transformed by supporting its most important resource, the children.
Nicaragua is the second poorest country in Latin America, with more than 40 percent of the population living below the poverty line. Poverty most severely affects Nicaraguans living in rural areas, such as Rivas located near the southwestern coast of Nicaragua.
Hillier Ignite currently supports over 3,500 children at over 40 feeding centers in Nicaragua. These feeding program have begun to reach children in very remote locations, like Rivas, where opportunities for the children are much more limited.
These feeding centers were entirely funded by proceeds from past parties. Ignite the Night events help to continue to ensure these children are receiving the care and nourishment they need.
