COMMIT, a non-profit organization, was born after a team of dedicated volunteers, mostly from the medical field in Southwestern Ontario, ventured into the second poorest country in Central America, Nicaragua. While there
we saw the needs firsthand and through working together with the local government have been able to improve the lives of many individuals and communities. It has always been our goal and desire to provide the people with what they need and what will benefit them when we are not in country.
COMMIT promotes microeconomics as we encourage self-sufficiency and enpowerment by fully involving the participants in all endeavours. Through training and workshops the people have been able to better provide for their families and communites with the desire to further their learning.
Twice yearly we take a team of interested indviduals to Nicaragua to work on our various projects. By returning yearly to the same areas we have been able to form lasting friendships and bonds with the people we serve. During the ten years that we have been working in Nicaragua we have seen the evolution of our projects and the benefits our a helping hand.
What an honour to assist the local government and change lives through our work. We look forward to continuing our projects with the people and hope to be able to sreve them for many more years to come.
"Compassionate commitment to bettering the lives of people in less advantaged countries through
effective and collaborative use of medical, social and educational programs."
