The Verbo-Nicaragua Development Fund (VNDF) was founded to act as an international advocate for Verbo Ministries, based in Managua, Nicaragua.

We work to raise awareness of, and support for, Verbo's ongoing work to alleviate conditions created by extreme poverty and to provide opportunities that make it possible for Nicaraguans to break the cycle of the intergenerational transmission of poverty (ITP). Verbo Ministries in Nicaragua was established in 1980 by a small team of Americans, Nicaraguans and Guatemalans who originally came togeth

Nicaworks! Staff recently met Miguel de los Angeles and Freddy Antonio,two teenage brothers who live with their grandfather on the outskirts of the capital Managua. Although this small family has their own land, the conditions of their home were poor. Nicaworks! has started with the construction of a concrete house for the family. We feel blessed to have met this wonderful family and look forward to continuing our friendship.

Meet Augusto Valle, Nicworks! Master Carpenter. Augusto is currently in charge of the carpentry training program. He not only trains students in carpentry but is committed to spending time mentoring them and preparing them for their futures.

Augusto comes from a family of carpenters. He remembers as a child racing his family to see who could put a piece of furniture together the fastest. When Augusto is not at the Carpentry shop he enjoys spending time with his wife and four beautiful children.

Augusto provides so much love and cheer to the Nicaworks! team and we could not be more thankful for him.

Wonder what makes our work possible? It's the generosity of ordinary people like you....and the campers from New Life Bible Camp!

Two summers ago the camp staff wanted to collect money for a worthy cause related to their camp theme, which was sewing. Campers were encouraged to donate leftover snack money at the end of each week toward the NicaWorks! sewing vocational training project. They raised nearly $1,000! That money enabled us to purchase industrial equipment and supplies for our school uniform project.

That gift continues to bless hundreds of families in need today as we provide free high-quality school uniforms to preschool - 5th grade children, and provide women with paid training and work.

Thanks for investing in #Nicaragua and for your #faithfulness New Life Bible Camp!

The new school year started in Nicaragua last month and these students are excited to get started. Because of your generosity and support NicaWorks! was able to provide new uniforms to 164 students just this month through our vocational sewing program. The women in the program pour their heart into every uniform they make and we could not be more grateful for all of their hard work.

We get it...Mondays can be hard. But let this be a little motivation:⠀

The work you do and the choice you make to share a little something you earn makes it possible for a little girl in Bluefields, Nicaragua to have one good meal today. ⠀

You alleviate her mother’s worry about how she’ll feed her kids today. ⠀

You create a job for the person who prepares the meals. ⠀

You gladden the heart of the pastor who can open the church to serve the meal. ⠀

Just by going to work today and giving a little. ⠀

See? Mondays aren’t all bad. ⠀

And we think you’re pretty great!⠀
