What separates Clinica Verde from other nonprofits is its holistic approach to wellness, care and education. Clinica Verde does not just provide quality service to individuals in need, but it also provides long-lasting relationships and opportunities for young individuals to jumpstart their educational goals. I personally have been touched by the mission that this nonprofit has to offer to their community. Its not every day that individuals are offered healthcare, an education and friends. Clinica Verde is the ideal nonprofit.

Clinica Verde truly impressed me when I visited about a month ago and my hope is that this same model can be replicated in other Nicaraguan towns. Being from Nicaragua and looking to get involved with a healthcare related organization, CV has exceeded my expectations.

Not only are the facilities impeccable, the ladies and gentlemen that I encountered all had smiles in their faces. They seemed genuinely happy to be there; and that is probably such a breath of fresh air to patients as they walk through the door.

Nicaragua needs more places like CV where people can be treated in a clean facility with kindness and respect. I particularly loved their garden and meeting the gentleman who oversees it; you can tell he is really proud of the work he has done. As was everyone else.

I look forward to helping CV and bringing awareness to their amazing work here in Nicaragua.

Our experience at Clinica Verde was moving, wonderful, emotional, and eye opening. We are truly blessed to have had the opportunity to experience the love, kindness, caring, and selflessness of everybody involved. This was our first trip and we were not sure what to expect. Clinica Verde exhibits something so special in such a deprived area. It demonstrates a sophisticated operation in a poor country with great need. Everybody involved was very proud to be a part of the facility. We departed with passion to return and great desire to be a part of Clinica Verde in the future. We are so humble. Clinic Verde has made quite an impact on our lives.

They are a wonderful organization! I learned a great deal about medicine in developing countries. The staff was incredibly thoughtful and organized; they were helpful with the volunteers and incredibly compassionate with the patients. The garden is an impressive endeavor as well! It seemed to bring a lot of people from the community together.

I recently toured Clinica Verde for the first time and it is a truly a new model of healthcare in which patient experience comes first. The facilities are impecable and the staff is very friendly. Clinica Verde has created a sense of belonging for those in the community and has met their health care needs improving their lives. It is a truly an inspiring non-profit organization that is also educating the future generations on health care and sexual education.

Soy un joven de 21 años de edad, estudiante universitario. En el año 2014 Clínica Verde visito la universidad donde estudio y presento un proyecto de un club de consejería instalado en la clínica, me llamo mucho la atención inmediatamente visite la clínica donde su recibimiento fue esplendido, me encanto y desde ese momento me sentí parte de la familia de clínica verde por su interés de ayudar a muchos jóvenes, desde ese tiempo me he venido retroalimentado de temas de mucha relevancia e interés juvenil, y en lo personal me ha ayudado mucho porque es un espacio que compartimos nuestras experiencias como jóvenes y nos ayudamos mutuamente, además ese espacio nos ofrece una tutora que nos brinda sus amistad y apoyo incondicional, sin duda alguna es un lugar acogedor donde los jóvenes somos los verdaderos protagonista, y lo más interesante de este proyecto es que engloba a muchas personas como la familia y nuestros amigos ya que con nuestros conocimiento podemos ayudar con un consejo oportuno a la gente que nos rodea, es una experiencia única y es una oportunidad que nos brinda Clínica Verde a toda la juventud de Boaco.

Clinica Verde es un lugar único, extraordinario que da vida al sueño de muchos y respuesta a una población necesidad y vulnerable en temas de salud. Para mi Clínica Verde es la mejor experiencia de trabajo comunitario porque es un lugar lleno de amor y compasión para quienes buscan salud no solo física sino espiritual, por que promueve la atención afectiva al paciente y promueve la prevención de enfermedades educando a la población.

As a chaperone for the HIGHER (Helping in Global Health, Education and Reform) program through Clinica Verde, I traveled to Nicaragua and worked alongside high school students who gained first hand exposure to the medical needs of the rural town of Boaco. The staff at Clinica Verde welcomed us with open arms into the clinic. The students shadowed the doctors, pharmacist, nursing staff and learned about the youth program that focuses on adolescent health with the effort to minimize the rate of teen pregnancies. Learning about the various illnesses faced within the population, the students gave health presentations on critical topics such as food hygiene, vector borne diseases and nutrition.
The experience allowed them to not only practice their Spanish but also actively engage with community members. The 10 days spent in Nicaragua were very rewarding, not only learning about health issues but also learning about the culture and the Spanish language. Clinca Verde is a clinic that not only provides medical care but also strives to engage and meet the needs of the community. It's welcoming environment strives to emphasize that the clinic is not just a place to come when you are sick, but also a center for the community that promotes a healthy and thriving life for everyone. This trip is an amazing way for students to gain global health exposure at such a young age with a desire and interest to pursue a career in the medical field.
