Mustard Seed Communities
Mustard Seed Communities is a non-profit 501-3(c), community development organization that began in 1978 Kingston, Jamaica. Hogar Belen in Managua, Nicaragua opened its door in 2000 to care for abandoned handicap children. In 2004 Mustard Seed Communities felt a calling to minister to the people of La Chureca and the Christ in the Garbage Ministry was formed. A feeding program was initiated to address the immediate needs of the families living in La Chureca. Later in 2006 a sewing center, Centro de Costura, opened to teach women from the dump a trade that could give them a chance for a brighter future.
