Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America, and poverty has been an issue there for some time. Yet with recent tax changes and decreasing jobs, it has increased dramatically. 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 Nicaragua, 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.
We have sent numerous delegations to Nicaragua. As many have seen from our October updates, we have started up trips to Nicaragua again! We are now planning for 2020 group service trips. Please contact us if you are interested.
Help us keep the momentum going.
Every little bit helps.
