Need ideas for a great cause!!

I met this precious family while sailing 8 years ago off Nicaragua. They are 4 generations of mostly women who are in dire need of income in order to eat. I have been sending them food money for a while but the old adage: Give a man a fish you've fed him for a day, but teach a man to fish, you've fed him for telling me that now they need to be self-sustaining. The easiest way is for them to use a 4 door toyota corolla or honda civic as a taxi in order to generate income. I am trying to find someone of some company or charitable organization to donate a 2000 yr or newer to this great cause. The income generated will feed this family of 15.....all women but for 1 small boy. Does anybody have any ideas or channels that I haven't thought of?? I would then drive this vehicle to Nicaragua and give them a means of feeding themselves. FYI: It is very, very rare to find a woman driving in Nicaragua.
