Children of Destiny Nicaragua
Children of Destiny is a non-profit organization working in Nicaragua to bring hope and a promising future to children in the rural communities of Jinotega, Nicaragua. Since 1998 we have been working with orphaned children both in the inner city and the remote mountains in Nicaragua. Sandy Carter-Britnell originally built and ran the Children of Destiny orphanage in Jinotega for over 22 years. She has since transitioned the orphanage to a much larger ministry by opening a vocation trade school called the “Community Center Globe, Jinotega”. This school reaches out to all of the children in the surrounding communities of Jinotega. Sandy runs this ministry along side of a full-time Nicaraguan staff that are assisted by our U.S. Leadership Team.
Jinotega Community Center Education
Adult Education: On Saturdays we have adult education classes to learn to read and write. Many adults in the local area are illiterate. This makes basic tasks like finances, reading receipts or recipes, or helping children with schoolwork impossible!
Praying is the single most important thing you can do for the CODN children. And it doesn’t cost a dime! You can keep up with specific prayer request through our newsletters.
You can donate to the children and their families in our vocational center where we provide them with education and essential needs such as food and clean water.
Due to travel restrictions we are not currently hosting missions teams. We are looking forward to resuming missions trips in the future.
Partner with our ministry financially as a church, individual, or business. We can’t do this without your support! You are a crucial part to our team.
