When Jesus saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them...and He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest field."
Matthew 9:36 & 38
The Mission of Compassion in Action is to transform lives through the message of Jesus Christ, bringing quality education, humanitarian relief, and community development.
In 1999, a group of Christian men and women went into Nicaragua to volunteer their time by assisting with humanitarian needs. As a result, a non-profit Christian mission organization called “Compassion in Action” was born. In 2004, the small city of Ciudad Dario became home to Dario Christian Academy.
Today, our elementary and secondary schools provide a solid Christian education to more than 300 children. In the US, education is part of the norm, yet in Nicaragua, out of over 2 million children, only about half receive an education, and many of those that do are poorly educated. Dario Christian Academy students receive an outstanding education and have been nationally recognized for their academic achievements.
What first started as a simple desire to share Christ’s love with those devastated by a natural disaster, God has now put in place a team of dedicated believers seeking to train and equip Nicaraguan children to become the nation’s next generation of professionals and representatives of the kingdom of heaven.
Compassion in Action is a non-profit, non-denominational, 501 (c) 3 public charity.
