We are a non-profit organization working in Nicaragua to bring hope and a promising future to orphaned and abandoned children. For the past nineteen years, we have been working with children both in the inner city and in the rural mountainous regions of Nicaragua. Originally founded by Sandra Carter-Britnell in 1998, we have now grown to a large staff of full-time foreign aid workers from around the world, and full-time Nicaraguan staff. Our Childrens’ Home is located in the northern mountains of Jinotega. We love and cherish the children the Lord has brought into our care.
We have anywhere from 25 to 35 children at any one time for whom we provide full care including: food, clothing, shelter, education, and emotional and spiritual support. We take this calling very seriously and joyfully; we do what we do to bring the light of Jesus Christ to these children. Our Home is on a 16-acre plot of land where the children can be raised in a wholesome environment. The children help with raising chickens, pigs, and cows; as well as growing various crops including corn, lettuce, carrots, cabbage, beets, tomatoes and more.
Our Goal with these children is to raise them in a Christian environment where they learn to view life as an adventure, learn how to become responsible leaders, and develop an awareness of their own Godly destiny. While many of our children have been abused and abandoned, our hearts’ desire is to see them realize their true potential in the Lord and to know that they have a Father who will never abandon nor forsake them. We believe beyond our calling to disciple, we are also called to give the children the opportunity to go out and change their community from within. As such, we are currently working directly with our Nicaraguan staff and leadership to empower them in a locally focused effort which we believe will bring lasting change to the children, the workers, and the communities.
