Nicaragua Children’s Center
ICC first began working with children in Nicaragua in 2000, and built a small Children’s Village in 2004.
Although many government officials have praised the ICCN project for its loving, innovative and healthy environment for the children, and even used the project as an example for others to follow, governments do change their policies as new officials come into office. At this point, ICC has come to an impasse with the current Nicaraguan government as far as their new policies for providing care for the children of Nicaragua. This current government has decided to remove all of the children and place them within extended biological families, or “Foster Care” type situations.
Today, ICCN finds itself in a “pause” mode, waiting to see what will happen with those specific government policies. ICC is still operating the children’s village in Nicaragua with regards to the daily farm and other cottage industry programs, in order to be ready to take in children quickly if and when things change.
