The Giants made Nate Solder the highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL in March 2018, but money is not what drives Big Blue’s starting left tackle. Solder, 31, sees his greatest purpose off the field.
Solder and his wife Lexi financially support the organization Compassion International, a faith-based nonprofit centered on holistic child development in under-resourced countries.
The Solders are in the process of starting eight new programs in three countries to benefit more than 1,000 poor children and families. And this past offseason, they visited two of the local churches in Uganda and Guatemala to see their programs in action.
“They find the neediest of the needy in the slums of Uganda and the favelas of Guatemala.” Solder told the Daily News on Thursday. “All of these kids come from tough lifestyles. They have anger issues, anti-social behavior. So the holistic part of it is they’re taking care of their medicine, their education, their social interactions, and they’re teaching them Biblical lessons, which is not in their culture.”
Compassion’s new Survivorship Program aids pregnant mothers and their babies from day one. Their discipleship program brings in 5-to-6-year-olds and teaches them the Christian way of life while tending to their real-life needs.
