our community partner in Nicaragua
Association Las Tías was started by eight women after the revolution and subsequent Contra Wars swept the nation in the 70's and 80's and left thousands of children homeless. They began reaching out to these children to provide shelter, education and health with what little they had. Today, they have two thriving community centers that provide meals, education, health care, job skills training and micro-loans to the local community.
Ignite’s philanthropic arm, Spark Ventures, has been working with Las Tías since 2012 to provide sustainable support and empowerment. As part of the community engagement, Ignite travelers learn and participate in the Las Tías community center programs, help facilitate creative and team building projects, share meals with the Las Tías leaders, and participate in other rich cultural exchange and collaboration.
Ignite experiences are operated in close collaboration with our primary philanthropic partner, Spark Ventures. with 10+ years of experience building partnerships that lift communities out of poverty, we ensure our experiences are rooted in these deep relationships, are mutually beneficial and have lasting impact.
