Meals will be prepared by local Nicaraguans, and you will eat as a team in the Rancho. Transportation to different ministry sites is provided by certified and licensed Nicaraguan drivers in private buses.

What our mission can typically entail:
Throughout the week, teams build relationships in local communities through service projects and relational activities. Service can include mixing and pouring cement for a local church, painting at a local school, maintenance projects at a care home, sharing a VBS program with children, or serving at a feeding program.

Forward Edge will work directly with your Group Leader to match the gifts and desires of your team to the projects and needs that have been identified ahead of your arrival. Each day your team will experience a morning devotional, an evening debrief, and relationship building opportunities through serving the local people.

Villa Esperanza at a Glance:
Our ministry partner and host Forward Edge has been sending teams to serve in Managua, Nicaragua for over 25 years. In 2008, God opened the doors at Villa Esperanza (Hope Village), a home for many at- risk girls. Many of these girls used to live in or around the Managua city dump (La Chureca) where they suffered from extreme pollution, poverty, and a high risk of various forms of abuse. They now live in four homes at the Villa, with three of the homes under the supervision of a house mom. The fourth home is considered our “transitional home” for older girls.

In 2013, the Managua city dump was closed down by the Nicaraguan government, and a recycling center was built. Some families were given new homes near the recycling center, however, their resource for making an income (garbage) is no longer available.

Villa Esperanza will continue to bring in girls from at- risk situations in the area, including the new neighborhood next to the old dump. The vision for these girls is that they come to know Jesus Christ and be a light to their families. In addition, they’ll benefit from increased knowledge and resources allowing them to earn a living and help pull their families out of poverty for good.
