Why Nicaragua?
Nicaragua is one of the poorest nations in the Americas. Approximately 30% of the people in Nicaragua live on less than $2 per day and have limited access to a proper education or job opportunities. In rural areas, extreme poverty rates increase to over 50% per household.

Where are we based?
NicaRise is based in the southwest coastal town of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. With operations based on the pacific coast of Nicaragua we are able to reach more than 80 percent of the population within 4 hours.

The Mission
Our goal is to create sustainable economic opportunities for Nicaraguans by providing entrepreneurial education and support services to local communities. Investing in the people of Nicaragua will empower lasting change and provide additional generations with opportunities to rise out of poverty.


NicaRise partners with several local nonprofits that provide their communities with much-needed support, but we can always use your help! On your next trip to Nicaragua, let making meaningful memories include making a meaningful impact on local communities in need.
