These children are the future leaders of Nicaragua
— Pastor Carlos Baez

In the hills of northern Nicaragua, a team of pastors and their families work to help rescue children from poverty and hopelessness through nutritional support, education, spiritual discipleship, and micro-businesses. 

In the United States, Christians from across the country work to support the team by raising funds, selling handmade goods, and praying for the work in Nicaragua.

We are the Cascabel Collective. 


The Five Parts of the Ministry:

“Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me
— Matthew 8:15

Cascabel ministers to needy children in Nicaragua through:

  • the Cascabel home where 25 kids rescued from a dump live
  • the Mercy Ministry for children with disabilities 
  • the farm 
  • selling of fair trade product
  • feeding centers
