Our Mission

We are committed to elevating rural communities throughout Nicaragua by mobilizing local people to do the work. We implement programs that provide opportunities to locals to create change in their lives and communities. We accomplish this by working with the local community, central government ministries, local and international volunteers, and partners and donors who support our programs and assist us in implementing them on the ground.

NICA’s mission is deployed in two key areas: Educational programs/scholarships, coupled with community improvement work initiatives to help adults meet their family’s basic needs. These programs are efficient and deliver on our mission of the “Triple Bottom Line”.

We define this as social, environmental and commerce development. Somos El Cambio, CREA, English Programs and Scholarships are the specific programs that complete our mission to effect lasting change in rural Nicaragua.
