NICARAGUA - WHAT CAN WE DO?

Let's help the children! YOU CAN BE THE ONE!!

We partner with people that are passionate about supporting children in the Nicaragua's capital city, Managua, and surrounding areas. You can BE THE ONE to help make a huge difference in a child's life.

Come partner with us in 2018 to empower Nicaraguans to take ownership in improving children's lives in their communities. As the poorest country in Central America, Nicaragua has tremendous needs. Children in Nicaragua are some of the most vulnerable in the world. Because Nicaragua is the safest country in Central America, there is a tremendous opportunity to meet those needs.

  • PROJECTS

    Hope Centers

    Since 2015, 8 Hope Centers have been completed around the city of Managua. A Hope Center in NIcaragua is used to support the children and families in a community. Hundreds of Nicaraguan children are fed meals at the Hope Centers. Kids go to their Hope Center to be in a safe environment where they can study, participate in youth development activities and be encouraged. Families meet at the Hope Centers to build relationships and support each other.

    MISSION TRIPS are planned several times each year to build relationships with the Nicaraguan children and families, support children's summer camp and assist in building projects.
