Nicaragua

CARE’s work in Nicaragua

CARE has been working in Nicaragua since 1966, including through the years of political turmoil and civil war. From our original focus on education and primary healthcare, we have expanded into agriculture, water, sanitation and preventive health.

We work with poor communities to improve living standards through access to safe water, basic sanitation, quality healthcare, sustainable agriculture and natural resource management, and projects to improve incomes. In times of disaster we provide emergency relief to help people rebuild their lives and communities.

CARE's reach

We work in 79 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.

About CARE

Founded in 1945 to send 'CARE packages' to people recovering from war, we have been fighting poverty in the world’s poorest countries for 70 years.

Our mission

We empower women and girls to fulfil their potential – because when one woman is helped out of poverty, she brings her family and community with her.

Your support

Your support is what makes our poverty-fighting work possible. You can trust us to spend our funds wisely and effectively to help people in need.
