Nicaraguans Need Help
Nicaragua is one of the most poverty-stricken countries in the world, third only to Haiti and Honduras in the Western Hemisphere.
However, Nicaragua is going through exciting economic growth, and demand for workers is high. The issue is most young people are not receiving the necessary training and skills to meet the demands of employers.
This is where we come in.
of 6+ million live in poverty
medium household income
Our Simple Formula
We offer tuition assistance to eligible individuals who seek to improve their economic situation.
We work to improve people's job skills to significantly increase the odds of getting hired.
Having these skills result in salaries 3 to 4 times the average Nicaraguan household income of just $200 per month.
In 2014, we enrolled Angel in an English academy as a test run for Ayuda Real. We dedicated $30 per month for 12 months, essentially drinking a little less coffee each month.
Angel's progress was unbelievable and he found employment almost immediately after becoming proficient in English. Within 2 years he has a successful career that quadrupled his income along with benefits and is completely self-sufficient.
This is the result of providing an individual with opportunity.
