The Rainbow Network's mission is to share in the love of Jesus Christ by partnering with Nicaragua's poorest people in healthcare, education, economic development and housing. Rainbow Network is currently working to lift 42,000 people out of extreme poverty throughout 112 rural villages in rural Nicaragua. Rainbow's unique approach combines comprehensive services in the areas of housing, healthcare, education, and economic development, building the framework of a productive local economy to entire communities. Our work is designed to empower people living in remote areas in destitute conditions. Rainbow Network enters by invitation into communities where basic services for the poor are extremely limited or not available from the Nicaraguan government, other religious organizations or social agencies.The goal of our programs is to provide people with the opportunities to become self-sufficient and be able to raise their economic status so that they are able to provide their own food for their families, obtain descent housing and be able to send their children to school.
