Who We Serve - Nicaragua Resource Network
Mission Statement: To fulfill Jesus’ command to love God and to “love your neighbor as yourself” by giving of our time, talents and resources to address the spiritual, physical and educational needs of impoverished children and families in Nicaragua.

NRN is a voluntary community of faith called by God to serve in Nicaragua. We make long-term commitments to the pastors, churches and schools that we support and empower the pastors to fulfill the visions that God has given them. Our desire is to bring hope, through joyful service, compassion and personal involvement between North American volunteers and their Nicaraguan brothers and sisters.

Imagine, if you can, being 12 years old and living on the streets of a war-torn country where extreme poverty is the norm. Maybe you lost your parents to disease or a devastating hurricane... maybe they simply abandoned you as a baby. This scenario is all too familiar to the children of Nicaragua. They know hardship, but very few know joy and very few know hope.

NRN ministers as servants and partners of Nicaraguan church and community leaders. ACF has responded to the call to be deeply invested in the lives of these leaders and the people they serve. ACF has also engaged by taking a committed role in a child sponsorship program through NRN.
