Welcome to Nuevas Esperanzas!
We are a young and professional organisation serving poor communities in Nicaragua through projects which provide practical and technical assistance in support of long-term sustainable development.
We work in a number of sectors including water, the environment, livelihoods and education following a model of holistic, transformational development which addresses material and spiritual needs in a culturally appropriate manner. We aim to integrate innovation and technical excellence with good practice in development, always mindful of the complex web of economic, environmental, social and spiritual issues which conspire against those living in poverty.
