From start to follow-up, Rainbow Network gives hand-ups not hand-outs to the people in rural Nicaragua. Legacy Global Foundation is excited to announce that we will match up to $25,000 of all new non-designated donations through July and August 2018.
We have been impressed with Rainbow Network’s focus on promoting self-reliance. Individuals and families are able to provide for themselves, to have a safe home, receive an education, and have access to medical care through Rainbow Network’s programs.
From the beginning, Rainbow Network strives to include every community member. Whenever they first go into a new community, a town hall-style meeting is held. Generally, at this meeting:
They ask what the community needs.
Together, they brainstorm ways that they can work together to meet those needs. Often, this can take 3-4 meetings.
Finally, community members to vote to formally invite the Rainbow Network to begin working with the community.
Next, a committee of 10-15 locals is elected. Then, the committee members are tasked with overseeing the work of one of the four focuses: Housing, Economy, Education, and Healthcare.
Typically, over 1,000 volunteers and committee members work on projects within their communities on a daily basis. For this reason, all projects are connected in order to simplify management and funding.

Most importantly, Rainbow Network holds itself accountable to each community. As an example, monthly meetings with committee members and community town hall meetings every 6 months.
The Rainbow Network is a non-denominational Christian organization. These are ordinary people making an extraordinary impact that will be felt for generations. You can partner with Rainbow Network and join the ordinary people that are instigating lasting impact.
