Transforming Life in Nicaragua
Amigos for Christ is a nonprofit organization that facilitates leadership, water, health, education, and economic development in rural Nicaraguan communities.
This year, so far, has been packed full of progress and growth, which you’ll get a glimpse of in the Quarter Highlights.
We work shoulder-to-shoulder with our Nicaraguan neighbors to bring opportunity to rural communities in need. By working together, we spark transformational growth in people, families, and communities.
Our work is all about people. Juntos means working together, and that takes listening well, building infrastructure for change, and even picking up a shovel when the time comes.
What Keeps Us 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 plenty of opportunities to work juntos with us every year. You can support our work through donations or fundraising, volunteering your time and unique gifts at our U.S. office, or visiting us on a mission trip to Nicaragua.
Through the new Amigos Academy Scholarship Program, we provide sponsorship opportunities to support the education of each student. We are partners, walking juntos with each parent, student, family, and teacher as they dream of transforming the future.
Join Us in Nicaragua
Our faith moves us to love and serve others. Be part of life transformation in Nicaragua.
Our mission trips completely immerse participants into the Nicaraguan culture for a deeper look into the lives of amazing people. Stepping out of our comfort zones to meet new people and experience different things can challenge us to come alive in new ways so that we can live abundant, purposeful lives.

1 Manzana Project
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, supplying technology to manage the farms, providing technical and financial management assistance, and financing the project in the form of a 5-year line of credit, we are helping to increase a farmer’s profits from his own manzana (around 2 acres) of land. Our goal is that each farmer will be debt-free and providing full-time employment for others in the community.
