Accomplishments

MILESTONES

  • We have served over 50,000,000 meals in our Feeding Centers since 1995.
  • We operate 350 feeding centers in the 144 communities providing over 10,500 children, pregnant and nursing mothers, one meal a day.
  • Over 1.5 million children’s and prenatal vitamins are distributed by Rainbow Network each year.
  • Rainbow Network’s 11 full-time physicians perform over 50,000 consultations each year with over 725,000 consultations already made in our medical clinics since 1995. Our doctors have, and distribute medicines as or if needed in each consultation.
  • Rainbow Network has graduated 2,060 children from high school with our scholarship program. Many of the 144 communities we work in, never had anyone go to high school before.  None of these kids would have been able to go to high school without Rainbow Network!
  • There are currently over 1,200 high school students enrolled in our high school scholarship program. All from these remote rural communities.
  • More than 40,000 elementary children have learned to read and write through the Rainbow Network grade schools. Nearly 8,000 children attend elementary classes each day in over 350 schools operated by Rainbow Network.
  • Approximately 6,000 small business loans are active at any one time with an average of 100 new loans each week. Since 1995, we have provided over 100,000 loans averaging $280 each for people to start and grow their income.  All loans are for business opportunities only!
  • 1,068 houses made of cement blocks, cement floors and metal roofs have been built providing safe and dry housing for over 8,500 people. Each home has space for a family garden and an area for children to play.  100 new houses are planned for 2018.
  • In 2017 we added our 8th network, San Dionisio, adding over 5,000 new people into the services Rainbow Network offers to the desperately poor in rural Nicaragua.
  • We will add network #9, San Isidro, in the first quarter of 2018, serving an estimated 5,000 more people with all of our programs of education, economic development, housing and healthcare! This will bring the number of people served to around 50,000, living in 164 communities.
