Committed To Nicaragua

Amigos for Christ is a nonprofit organization that facilitates water, health, education, and economic development in rural Nicaraguan communities. Our mission is to serve, so that Christ becomes more visible. Our vision is to be a model cross-cultural community development organization.

Philosophy

We practice being good neighbors (vecinos). Vecinos who listen well, build infrastructure for change, and pick up a shovel when the time comes. Vecinos who invest our lives in Nicaraguan life.

Why Nicaragua

The need in Nicaragua is great; it’s the second poorest country in the western hemisphere. Kidney disease kills more people each year than in any other nation. Most children don’t finish the sixth grade. Skin disease, parasites, and respiratory disease run rampant. Improved health and family life is impossible to achieve alone, yet hope remains.

Why We Keep Going

Our faith compels us to take action. Through every project we strive to make Christ visible to each person who comes in contact with our team.

You Can Join Us

There are thousands of opportunities a year to be a good neighbor (vecino) in Nicaragua – where we highly value personal connection. After all, our work is all about people.
