ABOUT EL AYUDANTE

BE THE HANDS AND FEET OF CHRIST. WHETHER THIS IS YOUR FIRST TRIP OR PLANNING A RETURN VISIT — YOU SHOULD FIND EVERYTHING YOU NEED HERE TO GET YOU STARTED.

El Ayudante means “the helper.”

We are a Christian humanitarian organization based in León, Nicaragua, dedicated to partnering with the Nicaraguan people to transform the nation: One child, One family, One community at a time. Since 2001, El Ayudante has pursued this goal using a two-pronged strategy:

  1. Our Children via sponsorships:
      • Our teachers and staff care for 34 children and their families through our Nicaraguan Christian Home
        known as the HCN. We work daily with each child and their family in our mission to improve quality of
        life by providing, housing, excellence in education, job skills, nutritious meals, medical care, and
        spiritual nurturing, all with the purpose of bringing holistic change.

  2. Our Teams & Communities via mission trips:
      • We host approximately 20-30 short-term ministry teams each year from the United States to work with local Nicaraguan community leaders toward bringing tangible, holistic change in people’s lives in the areas of spirituality, education, medicine, construction, and training. Teams partner with us to determine their passions and set goals for their mission trip. We ultimately provide an itinerary for the trip including housing accommodations, delicious meals, dedicated translators, and transportation to and from the mission field.
