The Need is Great in Nicaragua

 

There are over 6 million people living in Nicaragua. The unemployment rate is very high at 58%. Many of the people who do have jobs, do not make enough wages to rise above the poverty line. Another issue is the lack of education for many. They do not have the means to further their education so that they can improve their situations.

We have been mentoring and teaching in Nicaragua for 15 years. During that period we have helped over 7,500 families. We have a presence in Managua, Leon, Masaya, and Chinandega.

During 2019:

  • We opened up a new Learning and Mentoring Center in Jinotepe
  • 857 students graduated from one of our programs
  • 759 of these students went on to better-paying jobs, started their own business, or enrolled in additional training
  • 56,854 hours of service were performed by our student throughout the surrounding communities
