When I was first approached to join the Board of Directors of Clinica Verde I did the proper due diligence, visited their website, read all the background materials, met some of the other board members and came away impressed, excited and challenged. When I actually visited the Clinica, I saw not only the facility itself, but the surrounding community it serves. Seeing all this first-hand, it surpassed my first -already high- impressions and expectations.This is only the beginning and I am thrilled and humbled to be in a position to help see this model not replicated but enhanced and extended.

Over the past few years, I have been able to work as an Intern with Clinica Verde. My roles as an intern varied greatly from time to time but I always felt that what I was doing made an impact. I was able to see first-hand the clinic in action as I travelled to Boaco, Nicaragua with the non-profit four times. Seeing the great impact this organization had on the lives of Nicaraguans was amazing. This clinic provides the impoverished residents of Boaco with clinical care, health education, and nutrition. The leaders of this non-profit are extremely passionate and dedicated to improving the wellbeing of local Nicaraguans. I am so lucky to be able to say I had the opportunity to work with Clinica Verde and I am proud of the work the staff has done to create a strong, far-reaching non-profit organization.

Clinica Verde is an amazing place. Not only are the facilities well kept but their staff is warm and welcoming to everyone that walks through its doors. This is truly what impressed me because I believe it is very important for patients to feel immediately like they will be well taken care of; and being greeted with a smile certainly sets everyone up for success. I truly hope another Clinica Verde pops up in Nicaragua soon so that others may benefit from the great work that they do.

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.

I've been involved with Clínica Verde for around 5 months as an intern, and I've been incredibly impressed by the caring, passion, and drive of everyone that I have worked with. My position has allowed me to see the inner workings of the organization, and I'm proud to be involved with a nonprofit that does such important work for the health of families and young people.

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.

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.
