Project Nicaragua is a 501-3(c) not-for-profit organization that is comprised of Physicians, Medical Students, and Undergraduates within the US and Nicaragua.

Our mission is to advance the right to a healthy and productive life by addressing health related disparities in and alongside Nicaragua's poor.

What We Do


Project Nicaragua partners with organizations, communities, and individuals in both Nicaragua and the United States to advocate and cultivate sustainable medical and health­-related projects in areas of nutrition, socioeconomic development, water quality, and education. We engage communities through ongoing dialogue and collaboration to understand local challenges and create realistic solutions. We are committed to using an evidence­-based approach to develop our projects and measure our progress to best serve the needs of Nicaragua’s underserved. By engaging students at both the undergraduate and graduate level, Project Nicaragua creates and empowers teams of passionate leaders to make a meaningful difference.
