Luke Society Foundation of Nicaragua

The Luke Society Foundation of Nicaragua is an independent affiliate of the Luke Society International that has had its roots in the reformed tradition for many years. The local Nicaraguan affiliate began to operate in 2005, moving from the traditional clinic model to a community development approach. The focus of its work is empowering ‘campesino’ families in 10 rural communities. In addition to health and food security, the other program interventions include children at risk, gender, and community participation in disaster risk management.

AMOS Health and Hope

AMOS Health and Hope seeks to take action to help address the problems of poverty, disease and preventable deaths. AMOS is dedicated to improving the health and well being of people who suffer from the unjust conditions of poverty. AMOS programs respond to community-identified needs and build upon community strengths. Specifically AMOS's mission is to improve the health of impoverished communities by working alongside them in health,education and development. Community-based primary health care is about promoting good health, as well as treating and preventing illnesses. The model that AMOS uses embraces coordination between local leaders, public organisations, and private NGOs. It is health care for and by the community, working together to achieve health for all.   The health care project that began with a small collection of 13 communities in 2010  has now grown to encompass 27 communities in four departments, offering basic health care to over 13,000 people.

Center for Inter ecclesial Theological and Social Studies (CIEETS)

CIEETS and World Renew are collaborating together in this new partnership that addresses the effects of climate change due to deforestation along the 'dry corridor' that straddles the Pacific Ocean side of the country. CIEETS will be promoting sustainable agriculture systems to deal with the reduced and increasingly more infrequent rainfall patterns that many small land holder farmers depend on for their livelihoods.  In addition, CIEETS has a passion to work through churches and empower them to be lead the process as the communities are transformed.

Nehemiah Center

Building on the lessons learned from the pilot project of World Renew’s and the Nehemiah Center’s trauma healing ministry, the next phase will scale-up and accompany leaders from 22 churches in promoting a culture of peace building. 12 of the 22 churches were involved in the pilot project. The Nehemiah Center will continue with two tools and introduce a third:

2. Promotion of Restorative Practices in Conflict Situations
3. The Promotion of Domestic Violence Prevention and Healing
