Nicaragua faces extreme poverty, and is the second poorest nation in the Americas after Haiti. 79% of the country lives on less than US$2.00 a day. Nicaragua also has high levels of sexual exploitation of children, human trafficking, and the UN estimates 500,000 children aged 3-17 are not in the educational system. The high poverty levels force an estimated 340,000 children aged between 5-17 into the workforce. Seeds of Hope will provide these children with a meal each time they attend class, new vocational opportunities, spiritual mentorship, creative expression through the arts program, fun recreational classes, and a loving community to become a part of.
Seeds of Hope Nicaragua San Marcos was opened in 2019 by Keylin Chavez, and Seeds of Hope Nicaragua Granada was opened by Alberto Sandino and his family in 2019.
