CARE International - Nicaragua

Unverified non-profit organisation

CARE began operations in Nicaragua in 1966 and has continued working there, uninterrupted, despite political turmoil and civil war.

During the 1960s and 1970s CARE Nicaragua worked mostly in education and primary health care. During the 1980s CARE expanded its focus to include safe pesticide use, agricultural development and water-system construction.

Since 1990, CARE has embarked on a far-reaching rural water, sanitation and preventive health program, and has expanded its activities in sustainable agriculture and natural resources management.
