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.

Feeling valued as a human being is an essential pillar of human happiness and fulfilment. We all crave it, and we search to achieve this in a variety of forms such as friendships, parenting and work. For some, it is about leaving behind a legacy: a link to this world of substance before we return to the realm of everything and nothing. For others it concerns self-worth; a need to know that we are contributing something positive to this world in the form of our subjective and unique individual conscience, be it through art, science or love.
A sunny afternoon in Agua Fría became the site of a medical emergency as a group of four people arrived bearing an improvised stretcher. Comprised of a sturdy tree branch with an affixed hammock, the stretcher required two men to balance the pole on their shoulders with the patient suspended in the hammock between them. The patient in question was a woman who had abdominal surgery the week prior and subsequently suffered ripped stitches. Managing both the uneven trail and swinging motion of the improvised stretcher, the group arrived to where the Nuevas Esperanzas team waited.
On Friday 19 September, two powerhouses of world religion entered the sporting arena in Canterbury, England to decide once and for all which is best at cricket. On its Light of Faith tour, a visiting Vatican XI took on an Anglican XI in a match, the like of which has never been seen before.
