Villa Esperanza, A Place of Hope

Since 2008, Villa Esperanza (Which means Village of Hope) has been a holistic safe haven for girls rescued from abuse, neglect and trafficking in some of the poorest areas of Managua, Nicaragua. Since then, the Villa has grown into a five-fold ministry that includes the original Girls Program, a Boys Discipleship Program, a Scholarship Program, a Sexual Purity Training Program and a Community Development Program. Many Nicaraguans now consider Villa Esperanza as one of the most respected locally-led programs in the country.

Medardo's Story | Boys Discipleship Program

“Thanks to Villa Esperanza I can say that I have become a young man with good and firm foundation, who can serve society and his family.”
 
Medardo lives in Villa Guadalupe, a community of families displaced after the La Chureca garbage dump (where they lived previously) was closed in 2012. Facing many pressures from his community and especially other young men, Medardo has overcome the odds of boys his age and stayed true to his faith in Christ, upholding integrity, and growing into a positive role model for other young men.

The Villa Esperanza Program

Partnering with God to facilitate deep transformation and healthy decisions for life in Nicaragua through the Gospel.

In Nicaragua, the repeated cycle of poverty is propelled by a one-in-three teen pregnancy rate, extremely high drop-out rates in school, and a desperate need for the Gospel to be shared openly and fervently. All five of the programs run through Villa Esperanza were created to directly target these root causes of poverty in Nicaragua in a holistic and Christ-centered way.

A Holistic, Five-Fold Ministry

Girls Program

Providing a residential haven for bright, motivated young women coming from extremely difficult circumstances that would prevent them from flourishing. This exclusive live-in situation is designed to equip and empower young women with the potential to be future leaders and influencers in Nicaragua.

Boys Discipleship

A quarterly, weekend discipleship camp for boys (as well as monthly one-day retreats) to provide vocational training, recreational activities, and a Christian mentoring atmosphere, teaching them life skills and how to become spiritual leaders in their families and communities.

Scholarship Program

Providing boys and girls with necessary items for their education (uniforms, supplies, bus fares, etc.) and regular spiritual discipleship so they can pursue a quality education and a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ.

VIDA Program

A poverty-prevention training program aimed at fighting Latin America’s highest teen pregnancy rate (30% become teen mothers), which many call the “door” to repeated poverty. This program teaches the Gospel and the value of sexual abstinence to thousands of teens in the Nicaragua public school system.

Community Development

Visiting Forward Edge mission teams invest in local schools, churches, and communities with maintenance and construction projects, evangelism and discipleship. ​Local pastors are also trained in holistic ministry for their communities.
