Primary exempt purpose

To serve impoverished communities and families in Nicaragua. Our focus is on the families who live in or near the trash dumps near Managua. Generations of families have earned their "living" sifting through other's trash to find anything of value surrounded by fire, smoke, flies, stench and filth. We would like to remove all of the children from this environment and break this cycle of poverty through education and training and to give these families the hope they need to build a better life for themselves, their neighbors and their families.
