March / College Trip

3/11/2023 - 3/18/2023

Nicaragua is a beautiful, lush, green country, and is home to some of the most humble, loving people you’ll ever meet. It’s also one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere, where nearly half of the population lives in poverty…many of which don’t have access to the basics like clean water.

We work alongside Nicaraguans, building critical water systems for small villages, working in local schools, and developing relationships while experiencing God’s love in powerful new ways.

You were made for more than comfort and ease. A trip to Nicaragua forces you to think about the simplest of pleasures, starting with clean water.
