Who are we?

Amigos for Christ exists to serve God. We do this by two approaches. First, we facilitate sustainable, locally-empowered improvements in water, health, education, and economic infrastructure in rural Nicaragua. Second, we host short term missionaries who want to step out in faith and lend a helping hand. Through the life changing experiences that result, both missionaries and impoverished families grow together in faith and richness of life.

The world needs people who have come alive. At Amigos, that means dreaming big, growing to our fullest potential, and facing exciting new challenges every day.
