Chacraseca

  • A group of 270 farmers from the furthest sectors in Chacraseca sent representatives to us with an urgent request to help them buy a new tractor.

    At that time their only option for getting their fields ready to plant was to rent a tractor from someone in a nearby community, which is expensive, and they have to wait in a long line, often meaning they can't get their crops planted in time for the short spring growing season.

  • Baby Lizbeth was just 8 days old when the scorpion stung her. Normally, a scorpion sting hurts and can cause dizziness, numbness, and nausea. But Lizbeth was so small and so young that the sting site immediately swelled up and her heart started racing. Her little body was covered in sweat and she started having difficulty breathing. Fortunately for Lizbeth, the clinic was open and her mom made the 20-minute walk in half the normal time.

  • Sonañdo Juntos Ferreteria y Tienda

    The store is expanding! After two years in operation, the residents of Chacraseca are celebrating the Ferreteria as one of the best things that has happened in their community.

    "I can ride my horse to get what I need!"

    "It's wonderful, now I don't have to go the León to buy nails!"

    "I think I can repair my house now!"

  • With farmers in Nicaragua facing severe crop loss due to climate change, our partners in Chacraseca decided to establish a Model Farm and Farmer Field School.
