Plan has worked in Nicaragua since 1994, helping poor children to access their rights to health, education, protection and economic security. 70% of Nicaragua's population lives in poverty.
We promote children's rights and work to ensure that children, families and communities actively participate in their own development - from identifying problems to implementing solutions.
Today, more than 30,000 children in 6 of the 15 departments of Nicaragua participate in our programmes.
Boosting food security in Nicaragua
Hundreds of families facing food shortages in some of the poorest rural areas of Nicaragua are now eating healthily thanks to Plan's food security programme.
