Why Nicaragua?

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.

We have sent numerous delegations to Nicaragua. However, due to the State Department”s Travel Advisory, we are temporarily suspending these trips. In the meantime, we continue to provide support to our brothers and sisters in Nicaragua who have worked so hard on this project.

Help us keep the momentum going.
Every little bit helps.
