Hope Academy

Because of extreme poverty there are many children around the city of Matagalpa who beg or sell things on the street each day. Some are homeless, but many have left home to work, or are taking money back to their families. Because of this, they do not attend school, and therefore never learn to read or write. We provide an opportunity for children to learn the basics, prepare them to attend public school while providing assistance to their families so they remain together.

Building relationships with the children and their families helps us disciple them. We teach that poverty is a condition not a lifestyle and with education and a Hope found in Jesus Christ they can change their condition of poverty.

Children and youth
Economically disadvantaged people

The Faith Sewing Program teaches women from poor communities how to sew. We teach them how to make their own patterns, sew by hand and with machines that have been donated. This allows women to learn a valuable skill that will help their families and learn a trade that they can use to earn an income for their families.

Adults

When a family does not have enough food to feed their children, hope is scarce. Many of the families of Sor Maria Romero and 3M are faced with this dilemma every day. The Hope project is committed to reaching out to the hungry with both physical and spiritual nourishment. The Hope Nutrition Program provides a hot meal five days a week in Sor Maria Romero, 3M and Guadalupe

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

The mission of Hope 185 is to welcome children in the name of Christ by defending, protecting, and educating adolescents who are at risk of abuse and exploitation, following the example set by Jesus in Matthew 18:5.

“And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me.”

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to impact the children and their families through educational, nutritional, housing, and mentoring programs that let them know they are not forgotten. Our community development and vocational programs in impoverished barrios and neighborhoods help people break the cycle of poverty and give them hope for a better tomorrow.

Our strategies are first to share the hope that is found in a personal relationship through Christ. Secondly we provide education and vocational training for children and adults. We provide nutrition that not only improves health but also helps in the mental development of children.

We are able to meet these goals through the personal relationships we have established and through our NGO being registered and recognized in Nicaragua. We have been able to partner with other NGOs in Nicaragua and are working to develop a network.

We have accomplished our goals to reach younger children and enroll them in school, We have helped children in our nutrition sites gain weight and progress. we have built 16 homes and 2 church in six years. We have brought water to three hundred families through our water project. We have also started a anti trafficking program called Hope 185 that is working to protect children. We have completed our first Hope Center. This center houses our Hope Academy and Nutrition Program, a library and sewing center. In the fall of 2017 we are beginning our second Hope Center in Sor Maria Romero
