Flutemaker Ministries was born in 2006, when my wife, Linda and I performed for and gave out toys to 18 kids who were in the process of being rescued from a garbage dump in Nicaragua. Some of the children were living in a structure with no water, no electricity, no doors, no windows and no bathroom. The kids were sleeping in bags of rice and beans; it was an audience that changed our lives.
Through the help of many customers, family and friends, Flutemaker Ministries was able to buy land, build the kids a home, start a farm, sow into micro businesses and support efforts to feed children in feeding centers throughout Nicaragua.
Inside our website shopping cart you will be given an opportunity to help children through Flutemaker Ministries. Additionally, the proceeds of Erik's book and his music go to support the Kids of Cascabel. We sure appreciate the help.
By 2017 we have expanded our efforts and now support 243 children with disabilities, 49 Feeding Centers, helping children in the Miskito Coast and helping to educate the Kids of Cascabel so they can one day give back to their community.
