Training Center for 12 Remote Nicaraguan Villages



This project will equip teachers, small business owners, and pastors to better educate, lead and help families in 12 remote villages in Nicaragua, the second-poorest country in the western hemisphere. The poorest, most disadvantaged Nicaraguans live in these rural areas and have few resources. The Center will serve as a hub for training and resource distribution for the more than 3,000 people living in these communities. By equipping leaders we hope to help families rise out of poverty.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Remote Nicaraguan villages are cut off from basic resources and opportunities. People living in these 12 communities exist on less than $1 per day and experience high rates of illiteracy, malnutrition, and abuse. The average Nicaraguan completes less than 4 years of consecutive schooling. In many rural village families are broken apart by poverty - parents go looking for work abroad and children are sent to orphanages because family members can't afford to raise them.

How will this project solve this problem?

The training center will host visiting teacher teams to provide teachers with professional development and classroom supplies. Visiting business leaders will train entrepreneurs in running a business and provide needed micro-loans and equipment. Pastors will receive training, encouragement, and needed materials for distribution in their communities.We will store and inventory material donations at the Training Center to be distributed through local leaders according to need.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our goal is to measure an increase students completing more than 4 consecutive years of schooling and a drop in the illiteracy rate. By completing their education these students are more likely to obtain a job and contribute to their family's income. Separately, by equipping and financing would-be entrepreneurs we can help families generate income, move above subsistence, small-scale farming, and reduce local malnourishment rates. We aim to help 3,000 community members.
