Though JustHope is not primarily a "mission trip" organization, we do connect our North American partners with our Nicaraguan partners through trips. Trips are sponsored by one of our North American partners, who commit to engaging with Nicaraguan communities according to JustHope's core values: solidarity, sustainability, mutuality and collaboration. Each group chooses a project to work on in line with the needs of the Nicaraguan community (as that community has determined), but the primary goal of each trip is to build relationships rather than to complete projects.
