When our children first entered the program, most were not even in school.  With the help of these teachers at the HCN, several of our children have “graduated” from our program and now have the skills to be self-sufficient with vocational skills like construction/maintenance, cosmetology training, and even college degrees. Our teachers have a major impact on the lives of our children. Not only do they help with homework and reinforce what is being taught in school, but they invest in the assurance that children understand subjects where they otherwise would struggle and potentially fall behind.  Our on-site Psychologist assists to ensure our children develop emotionally and are able to work through personal or family issues.

Our program has been in existence long enough that we are starting to see the positive impacts that it’s making in these children’s lives.  Three of our children were apart of our program for over 15 years.  Two of those recently graduated with nursing degrees and another in accounting. Currently we have one child in college and three recent high-school graduates as of December 2020. They are all planning to attend college in the near future!

Teacher Introductions

Professor Isabel has taught Natural and Social Science at the HCN since 2007. She is the fifth of ten siblings and lives in the city of León with her mother, three nephews, and four brothers. Her favorite part of being a teacher is preparing children both in theory and in practice. She loves teaching, playing games, and advising the children. She greatly appreciates and admires that people make it possible for many of our kids to have an education and a home.

The Hogar Cristiano Nicaraguense (Nicaraguan Christian Home, HCN) located in León, Nicaragua has been serving the needs of children in Nicaragua through education and enrichment for nearly 20 years. Through the HCN, children are provided food, education, medical care, discipleship, and love. At the HCN, students receive tutoring, two meals and a snack, Bible studies, individual and family counseling, and medical care.

Monthly and one-time gifts help to sustain the work done by teachers at the HCN with our students. our teachers offer one-on-one tutoring, mentoring, and guidance to our students. Our teachers help the kids succeed in school.

In my life, I can describe El Ayudante in three words: “Blessing of God.” Serving is the key in El Ayudante and this has strengthened the value of service in my life. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to have a job, which allows me financial independence.

El Ayudante has meant love, sacrifice and dedication to the service of others.

— Prof. Marisol Dolmust, HCN Director


Our teachers do more for the children than we can put into words. They have families of their own and sacrifice many hours to guarantee success for our children. We are asking you to consider giving a recurring donation. The average teacher salary for one of our HCN teachers is $400 per month. Consider giving to help educate and support our students today.
