Granada, Nicaragua

Granada, Nicaragua was founded in 1524 making it the oldest city in the Americas. It offers a paradoxical blend of beauty and hardship. Nestled in the heart of the country, Granada is a stunning city with rich historical architecture and vibrant cultural heritage, making it a compelling destination for tourists. However, beneath the surface lies a stark reality—Nicaragua ranks as the second-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.


Amidst the picturesque landscapes and colonial charm, there exists a poignant contrast as many children in Granada grapple with the daily challenge of securing enough food. This duality encapsulates the complex narrative of a city where the allure of tourism coexists with the struggle for basic necessities, painting a poignant portrait of life in Granada.

In the midst of this dichotomy, The Pearl Foundation emerges as a beacon of hope. Operating in these underserved communities, the foundation strives to address fundamental needs such as food, education, homes, and, crucially, shares the Gospel of Jesus. By extending a helping hand to those in need, The Pearl Foundation aims to make a lasting impact on the lives of the children and families it serves in the communities surrounding Granada.
