MPowering People is a truly global organization, with team members in Belgium, volunteers from around the world, and a management team in León, Nicaragua.
We got our start in 2003, when we received permission to operate as a not-for-profit both in the Netherlands and in Nicaragua. In 2015 we expanded to partner with an educational organization, Diacachimba, run by a group of our supporters. This partnership offers additional support for our mission and projects, while still allowing us to remain an independent public charity. Diacachimba, which means “fantastic,” is headquartered in Belgium
in Kuurne, West-Vlaanderen.
