The need in Nicaragua is great; it’s the second poorest country in the western hemisphere. In Nicaragua, 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 are impossible to achieve alone, yet hope remains.

As we share some of the most exciting things going on around here, specifically over the last 3 months, we want to share it through the perspective of partnerships. Partnerships are super important for Amigos. They are the foundation of ALL of the work that we accomplish together. People coming together to share their gifts and talents, all partner together to make the world a better place.
So, let’s jump into our 3rd quarter highlights to see how we partner, particularly with other organizations, to make life change and progress happen for families in Chinandega!
Despite having the world’s most fertile volcanic soil, generating a profit from small-scale farming can be nearly impossible in rural Nicaragua. The 1 Manzana Project was created to change that. By investing in irrigation systems, technology to manage the farms, providing assistance for technical and financial management, and capital in the form of a 5-year line of credit for beneficiary farmers, we are working to help increase the profits that a farmer’s own manzana of land (around 2 acres) so that each farmer can become debt free and provide full-time employment for others.Learn More
