SIFT is a Christian charity seeking to bring hope to the poor of Nicaragua, Central America, through projects in health, education, and housing.
Bringing hope to Nicaragua
Nicaragua is the third poorest country in the Americas, with around 9% of the rural population living in extreme poverty, on less than £1 a day.
Last year 2,836 people from rural villages on the island of Ometepe received affordable healthcare at a SIFT clinic, including free medicines.
Our education sponsorship scheme enables around 120 children from poor families to go to a good quality school and receive a high standard of education.
Our work is funded thanks to the generosity of individuals, churches and trusts. 78p out of every pound given goes directly to projects in Nicaragua.
