Our Programs

Rural communities in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic struggle to access basic resources and services, like clean water, education and health care. The local and national economies do not provide the income and food security local families need to escape the cyclical nature of poverty.

Comunidad Connect changes that paradigm by bringing together donors, volunteers, and institutions with appropriate resources and in-country partners with local expertise and experience. Together, we co-invest and implement projects and programs that improve the quality of life of families living in poverty. Everyone makes a difference.
