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.

Agricultural Commercialization Project: Word & Deed is supporting an Agricultural Commercialization project which will train locals in eight communities in sustainable production of pineapple, coca, rice, bananas, beans, and other traditional and non-traditional crops. Over a span of 10 years, the project will involve micro-credits, training in family business development, pork production, poultry production and the development of Christian leaders. This project involves micro-credits, training in family business development, small livestock production, and the development of Christian leaders. Eventually, it is hoped that these communities will be able to move to commercialization of the produce.

Oversight in Nicaragua / Carlos Coffin: This project covers the cost of overseeing the projects in Nicaragua. It includes the cost of our full-time country coordinator, Carlos Coffin, who coordinates relief and development efforts in Nicaragua on behalf of Word & Deed. Carlos is an active participant in each of the projects that are carried out in Nicaragua.
