With the Pacific Ocean on the west and the Caribbean Sea to the east, Nicaragua is the second largest country in Middle America. The eastern coastal plains rise to central interior mountains, and the narrow Pacific coastal plain is interrupted by volcanoes. The climate is tropical in the lowlands and cooler in the highlands.
The Nicaraguan population is more urban than rural, and mostly of European and Indian ancestry. Spanish is the official language, but on the Caribbean coast indigenous languages are also spoken.
In 1524, Hernandez de Cordoba founded the first permanent Spanish settlements in the region. Nicaragua gained independence from Spain in 1821, briefly becoming a part of the Mexican Empire. In 1838, Nicaragua became an independent republic. The country began free-market reforms in 1991, after 12 years of economic free-fall under the Sandinista regime. Despite some initial setbacks, it has made dramatic progress. Nicaragua is primarily an agricultural country, but construction, mining, fisheries, exports, and general commerce have added to its stability and the well-being of its people.
Compassion’s ministry is focused on what we call holistic child development. This means developing children in all the different aspects of their lives—their minds, bodies and relationships while discovering God’s love for them in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Today, children around the world are discovering that poverty doesn’t have to be their future. Help one more do the same by sponsoring with Compassion!
While we're sorry you could not sponsor this specific child, we would love to help you find a different child to sponsor.
