Plan 7 Progress

What is Plan 7? Plan 7 is Amigos for Christ’s community development model. The focus of this model is long-term, sustainable growth in rural Nicaraguan communities.

These are the 5 goals to be accomplished within 7 years in each community: 

  • Community Leadership: The community leads, owns, and operates every project.
  • Water & Sanitation: Clean water is available 24/7.
  • Health: Reduce the cases of intestinal parasites, kidney disease, and respiratory disease by 10% each year & a septic system for waste (Modern Bathroom) in every home.
  • Education: 100% of children ages 5-17 attend school.
  • Economic Development: Family income is at least $15 a day.
