(VENTURA, Calif.) – Oct. 23, 2012 – Ventura-based GOCARE Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity, is helping Nicaraguans overcome crushing poverty.
Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America and the second poorest in the Western Hemisphere, with widespread war in the 1980s having destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure. GOCARE Inc. provides a bridge to a better life through educational, health and economic development curriculum programs. Currently, about 50 percent of Nicaraguans live below the poverty line, while 80 percent live on less than $2 per day, according to the U.N. Development Programme.
