• CICRIN is a non-denominational Christian Prevention Center and School for needy children on Ometepe Island in Nicaragua, a poor, economically isolated country where workers earn $4.70 day on avg. 
                      • Our purpose is to improve the lives of Nicaraguan children who are at risk by providing schooling and housing with the ultimate goal of preserving and reunifying families.
  • CICRIN is funded solely by the support of individuals, churches and institutions. Because of the political crisis in Nicaragua, CICRIN  needs your financial help! Check out "Updates" for more information.
  • Exciting changes are happening at CICRIN.  As we transition from a residential refuge to a Prevention Center and School, we will be better able to serve the children of Ometepe.
