Rainbow Network: The Rainbow Network is a faith-based organization working to end extreme poverty in Nicaragua through housing, healthcare, education, micro-finance, and sustainable agriculture. By integrating these programs and by working with local community leaders, Rainbow Network is finding effective solutions to the problems that cause poverty. Global Partners-Nicaragua is striving to intensify Rainbow Network's model of community development to more deeply address areas of need.

Matagalpa Regional Hospital: The Hospital Regional Cesar Amador Molina (HRCAM) in Matagalpa, Nicaragua, serves an area of over 500,000 individuals yet has only 300 beds and a limited number of services available. Global Partners-Nicaragua has donated EKG machines to the hospital, and has also had volunteer physicians participate in hospital rounds, evidence-based training, and surgical cases with Nicaraguan physicians at HRCAM. Global Partners-Nicaragua continues to explore ways to support healthcare delivered at this facility.
