Friends of Kairos Nicaragua is dedicated to contributing to the building of a world of justice and love. By gathering peoples in their local communities, in the community and culture of another, or at the Centro Kairós/Kairos Center in Managua, Nicaragua, we use pedagogies based on participatory education, believing that we are all teachers, all students, all gifted with tools that are necessary for creating a just and loving world.
We are open to people, communities, collectives, institutions, churches and other groups, without making distinctions for reasons of color, economic class, age, ethnic, religious, political or sexual identity—simply stated, the only requirements to participate are desire, openness, and commitment to be a part of the process, to dream and build together.
If you are interested in supporting our effort, there is a new way to participate. Amazon Smile is a Foundation that donates 0.5% of every purchase at Amazon to a charity which you designate.
To select a charity, simply go to www.smile.amazon.com and sign in to your account, and select Friends of Kairos Nicaragua. When you shop at Amazon, go first to www.smile.amazon.com and your purchase will be credited towards our efforts. If you forget to go there first, Amazon will periodically remind you. This costs you nothing, and will benefit your designated charity.

We accomplish our goals primarily by helping communities in the developing world to realize their strengths, to formulate their goals, and organize to accomplish them. These communities do this together with communities from other cultures who work side by side with them to change our world.
