International Service Immersion Experience
Experience Dates: March 24-31, 2018
Mustard Seed Communities (MSC) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to caring for the most vulnerable populations in society. MSC began in 1978 as a home for children with disabilities on the outskirts of Kingston, Jamaica. We have since expanded and built additional facilities in Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Zimbabwe. In 1999 Mustard Seed Communities expanded to Nicaragua to meet the needs of children with mental and physical disabilities, many of whom were abandoned. In cooperation with the local organizations, land was identified in a small neighborhood just outside of Managua and construction of a residential home began. MSC Nicaragua has since expanded to include a second home for children with disabilities in the town of Diriamba. MSC Nicaragua also assists women and families living in impoverished areas of Managua through the Christ in the Garbage Ministries program, which oversees the distribution of food packages and maintains a Resource Center for adult women to learn vocational skills and gain economic independence.
