Welcome to the Hope Project International, our mission in Nicaragua is to meet the spiritual and physical needs of impoverished people, with the purpose of sharing Hope.
The Hope Project International is a non-profit organization registered in the US. It was established in 2007 to improve the lives of underprivileged children and their families living in extreme poverty. Our mission is to assist families in Nicaragua, helping them break the cycle of poverty and giving them hope for a better future. Our programs include education, nutrition, vocational training, and humanitarian aid. Our name and mission are inspired by Jeremiah 29:11, which affirms God’s plans for our well-being and not our harm, offering a hope-filled future.
What We Do
Making Change Possible
In Matagalpa, Nicaragua, numerous children are forced to beg or sell items on the streets due to extreme poverty. While some have no homes, others have left their families to work and support them financially. Unfortunately, this means they miss out on the opportunity to receive an education and learn vital reading and writing skills. To address this pressing issue, The Hope Project International has initiated a tutoring program that imparts fundamental knowledge to these children and prepares them to attend public schools. Moreover, the program extends aid to their families to ensure they stay together.
Change for the Better
It can be extremely difficult for families who struggle to provide enough food for their children to maintain hope. Unfortunately, this is a daily reality for many families. The Hope project aims to alleviate this issue by providing physical and spiritual nourishment to those in need. Through the Hope Nutrition Program, we offer a warm meal five days a week for anyone hungry. Our five nutrition sites are located throughout Matagalpa, ensuring that our services are accessible to those who need them.
Many teen boys in Nicaragua cannot continue their education past elementary school because of simply being too old or having to work to help support their families. The situation is even more difficult for teen girls because many will become trafficked, pregnant, or trapped in abusive relationships. Many of these youths end up on the streets, and before long, they become addicted to drugs or alcohol and never gain the skills needed to support a family. Our vocational program aims to break the cycle by providing a way for young people to develop a trade skill that they can use to provide for themselves and their families. By learning trade skills, students will have all they need for a bright future and become all they were created to be.
