Children of Destiny Nicaragua

Children of Destiny, Nicaragua is a non-profit organization working in Nicaragua to bring hope and a promising future to orphaned and abandoned children. Since 1998, we have been working primarily with children both in the inner city and in the rural mountainous regions of Nicaragua. Originally founded by Sandra Carter-Britnell who runs the ministry alongside a full-time Nicaraguan staff that are assisted by our U.S. Leadership Team.
