Due to the civil unrest in the country, JustHope has suspended travel to Nicaragua for our partner groups. While our in-country programs continue to provide services, the situation on the ground is too uncertain for us to bring North American groups to Nicaragua at this time. We hope to provide opportunities for our US Partners to travel with us in the future, but for now we are not scheduling any trips. Stay in touch with Marc St. Martin, Director of Partnerships, for more information.

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.

  • [We went to the] market with the scenario of needing to feed three people off $1.37. It was a huge reality check to see how difficult it was to wander around the market and have to bargain for food and barter when we didn't have enough money to buy an onion.
