Partnering with the Nicaraguan people to transform the nation; One Child, One Family, One Community at a time
In all things, El Ayudante seeks to partner with local leaders and community organizations as we work together with the Nicaraguan people. We operate under the authority of government institutions.
Nicaraguans determine their vision and priorities for their communities, and we have the privilege of coming alongside them to offer our support.
Rather than a goal of “success” or “fixing things” by accomplishing short-term projects and agendas, we seek to form and nurture healthy, interdependent, and on-going relationships between local communities and cross-cultural teams.
The Role of the Church
God is already here and working through his church, so we seek to encourage and partner with the Nicaraguan church toward community development and the advance of God’s kingdom.
While relief is necessary at times, we seek a shared partnership toward community development and transformation.
We seek to give only to empower communities in their development; out of respect, we will not do for others what they can do for themselves.
Community development is a lifelong process, not a one-week project; we seek to utilize teams as an extension of El Ayudante’s long-term ministry.
We seek to identify and mobilize the capabilities, skills, and resources primarily from within local communities, not outside.
