How prepared are you to take a journey from the comforts of New England to the stark reality of poverty in Nicaragua? Brace yourself as Peter Schaller, Executive Director of Rayo De Sol, guides us through his inspiring transformation from deciding to take a handful of years off before going to college to get some life and work experience, to later becoming a being a beacon of hope for the Nicaraguan community. Hear the heart-touching narratives of families living in makeshift homes without basic amenities, and learn how Peter's passion for making a difference led him to create a multifaceted solution to these daunting challenges.

Rayo de Sol, a Christian nonprofit, is more than an organization - it's a life-changing movement. Feel the difference as Peter walks us through their various interventions, from reshaping the education system through teacher training and library creation to their nutrition program that not only promotes health but improves school attendance. Get inspired by their scholarship program for youth and witness their emphasis on community service, and their unwavering commitment to supporting local farmers.

But that's not all. We also zero in on the criticality of nutrition and microfinance in transforming communities. Get a firsthand account of the challenges posed by food deserts and the concerning rise of processed food consumption. Uncover the secrets of the Bio Intensive Agriculture system, a farming model that empowers small farmers to grow high-yield crops sustainably. Be a part of the conversation on Rayo De Sol's reforestation efforts and their response to the climate crisis's impact on local agriculture. Our conversation draws to a close as we discuss how YOU can support Rayo de Sol's mission and make a real difference.
