"Chispa de Vida" - Program for the Differently Abled

Chispa de Vida (spanish for “Spark of Life”) is a free program for differently abled people in the community of La Conception, Nicaragua. It strives to improve the quality of life for these individuals and their families. The project provides a free program of therapeutic and educational activities, assistance with transportation and medical necessities, as well as a supportive community.

Services available to this population from a government level are very limited. Chispa de Vida stepped in to meet this need and was once fully supported through funds students attending the Mariposa Language School & Eco Hotel. However due a collapse in tourism after the 2018 political crisis, we are seeking other sources of revenue to keep this excellent program running.
