Come Back to Give Back!


Founded in 2001, GOCARE empowers adults and children living in Nicaragua with the fundamental belief that citizens may live a self-empowered life through the power of education. GOCARE has helped more than 1,100 students go through its programs with the “Come Back to Give Back” core philosophy of mentorship and leadership. Students become mentors and leaders within the Nicaraguan community and help give back by teaching others.
