As a spiritually-based humanitarian organization, the North Country Mission of HopeSM is committed to fostering hope and empowering relationships with the people of Nicaragua through sustainable programs in education, healthcare, community and ecological development.
The North Country Mission of HopeSM began in 1998 as a direct ministerial response to the catastrophic effects of Hurricane Mitch on the impoverished villages of Chiquilistagua and Monte Verde in Nicaragua. The first mission team immediately recognized that direct, long-term assistance was vital in order to improve the lives of the people. Working hand-in-hand with local community leaders, the Mission’s primary objective is to empower the people to help themselves through Orphan’s Hope Project, ECO, Education, Community Development and Healthcare projects. In addition, by enlightening the area student and adult missioners to the conditions and needs of the poor, we are able to bring about changes in our own communities.
