ABOUT THE CHARITY

Work primarily in the San Juan del Sur and Matagalpa regions of Nicaragua, providing full scholarships for young rural students to attend medical school.

PROJECT DETAILS

Local communities should guide their own development, and we should encourage this through individual empowerment, regional partnerships, and by sharing tools that can help communities drive sustainable change. Our goal is to increase access to primary healthcare in rural Nicaragua by empowering youth to become agents of change in their communities. We are life-long, local, life-saving.
