We’re creating new opportunities for people in Nicaragua.
Will you join us?
With your help, we did it! The Cultural Exchange & Events Center in Catarina is now open!
The Rancho and facilities at Fundacion El Puente is available for local events, business workshops, meetings, family gatherings, international delegations, conferences, workshops, classes, and more.

Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America, yet about 30% of its citizens live in poverty. A little bit of help can go a long way.

Let’s make a lasting difference.
We’ve completed construction of our first cultural exchange building in Catarina, creating 6 regular and 52 short-term jobs. In a region where unemployment is high and underemployment affects half of the working population, job creation is an important part of our effort.
To date, our site improvements have included establishing the utilities infrastructure, including two water towers, the cultural exchange building, a guard house, restrooms, and the beginnings of a storage room and an outdoor kitchen. Landscaping is in progress as is planting and cultivation of fruit trees.
Help us keep the momentum going.
Every little bit helps.
