Word & Deed projects in Nicaragua began in response to Hurricane Felix, a category 5 storm, in the fall of 2007. Thousands of homes were destroyed, miles of forest land and crops were devastated, water wells were contaminated and the fishing industry was drastically changed. Initially, Word & Deed sent funds to support the relief efforts of clearing debris, rebuilding homes and cleansing wells. Now that the relief phase is complete, Word & Deed is continuing to partner with Palabra y Hecho de Nicaragua (Word & Deed Nicaragua) to further develop the very poor Miskito communities in northeastern Nicaragua.

The ten-year Agricultural Commercialization project in Nicaragua is now in its sixth year of operation. This program seeks to strengthen local production of marketable produce by training locals in effective farming techniques, by introducing new technology and training locals to use it, and by sharing resources and practical knowledge with those participating in the program. By strengthening local production our partners at Word & Deed Nicaragua hope to promote social and economic development in the targeted communities, and to promote biblical self-sufficiency.  The project has four basic components:
-    Develop sustainable agricultural production with a focus on commercialization
-    Develop small home businesses to generate income
-    Provide micro-loans to family businesses
-    Develop Christian leaders for service in their communities
