"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all surpassing power is from God and not from us.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
2 CORINTHIANS 4:7,18
Tesoros de Dios envisions a Nicaragua where children with disabilities have full access to inclusive schools, churches, and communities through continued collaboration and intentional partnership.
Our Outreach Program has three components:
Collaboration with Schools
We walk alongside private and public schools throughout Nicaragua by offering support as they include children with disabilities into their schools.
Location: Managua, Matagalpa, and any other department that requests support
Serves: Tesoros de Dios’s students that attend regular schools, as well as students that attend schools associated with Tesoros de Dios.
Workshops on topics related to Inclusive Education
Support with developing Individualized Educational Plans (IEPs) and Behavior Plans
Coordination between the special education program of Tesoros de Dios and the schools
Support with transition to further education and vocational training
Connection between the school and other resources offered by organizations that collaborate with Tesoros de Dios
Collaboration with Churches
Seeing the need of churches in Nicaragua to know how God truly views people with disability, we walk alongside churches to provide information and tools needed to best include people with disabilities into their congregations.
Serves: Tesoros de Dios’s students and to any other churches interested.
Workshops for the church related to disability
Promotion of home visits by the church for individuals with disability
Support in creating inclusive ministry within the church
Developing inclusion plans for specific individuals in the church in collaboration with the inclusive ministry.

Serves: General population
