Why to do a Mission with C-IT Nicaragua?
It will be way different from any mission trip you have heard of or experienced. You will be able to prove that our mission trips are not like any other, because we focused on helping from a local perspective and an approach that empowers people. Come to Nicaragua with an open mind as the main goal is to learn from locals and work alongside them. We have a different approach, it's from a local perspective therefore if your desire is to impact a community we will help you find the right way to do it as stated in the Holy scriptures of the Hebrew people, in the book of James 1:27 ("Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."); providing jobs, meeting the needs that will help anybody and everybody.
Nicaragua is a beautiful country in the middle of Central America, it´s been said that is the poorest country in Latin America, nevertheless people are not poor but limited to different conditions. Most people believe in God even when they are not part of a doctrine or denominations, in small limited communities you may be able to find too many churches even when there is a lack of health or education… With a C-IT trip you will be able to spend time with people in the communities, participate in their daily activities and identify their skills; this will help you to have a better understanding of their limitations, desires and dreams.
C-IT will immerse you into the culture and history so you can leave Nicaragua with a wider vision. Our Philosophy is: do not feed the poor but employ them, help them enhance their skills so they can break their limitations.
