My name is Laura and I live in Nicaragua, a country known for its vibrant culture but also for its deep poverty. My mom makes and sells tortillas to support me. I am so happy to be at the Hope Project. I am doing well in school and get along well with others.

Léon is the second largest city in Nicaragua. The country is considered the second poorest in the Western Hemisphere. 80% of its people live on less than $2 a day and the infant mortality rate is 25%. Years of war between the Sandanistas and the Contras combined with failed government policies have severely hindered their economic development. Project Hope Worldwide is holistically caring for orphans, partnering with schools, supplementing medical care, and providing spiritual and character mentorship, in one of the poorest areas of Léon.
