The Best Dollar you could spend in Nicaragua

The Best Dollar you could spend in Nicaragua

Each Dollar Goes a Long Way In Nicaragua

We’ve been able to achieve these results because of extremely limited overhead, and we like to tell donors exactly where their money is going. Our entire college educated staff team of five people in Nicaragua makes a total of $11,000 per year. Our rent for the educational community center is $100 a month. In other words, for about $1,000 a month, we can run programs for 2,500 learning center visits. Here are some other ways to think about this:

  • $1,000 a month provides a community with the resources they need to move towards college
  • $1 a day provides music lessons for about five kids
  • $1 a day pays for books to be checked out to about ten different people
