Bringing hope to Nicaragua

People icon

Nicaragua is the third poorest country in the Americas, with around 15% of the rural population living in extreme poverty, on less than £1 a day.

Medical icon

Last year 3,195 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 130 children from poor families to go to a good quality school and receive a high standard of education.

Coins icon

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.
