Mission: Rainbow Network is a Christian organization that specializes in long-term, partnership based, community development programs for Nicaragua. Operating since 1995, our mission is to share the love of Jesus Christ with Nicaragua's poorest people through healthcare, education, economic development and housing. Our work targets remote locations where people are suffering in dirt-floor shacks, without medical care, a lack of sanitation, pure water and limited educational opportunities. The average annual income of families in rural Nicaragua is about $500, or about $2 per day. Rainbow Network enters by invitation into areas where basic services for the poor are not available either from the Nicaraguan government or other religious or social agencies.
