The Cascabel Colletive is a collaborative effort between are partners in Nicaragua and the United States that provides hope and support for children with disabilities and their families.
Founded in 2012, “Un Corazon Para Amor” (A Heart for Love) began meeting the needs of families affected by disability. Pastors Carlos Baez and Pastor Abel Duarte oversee the day-to-day operations of the organization. Their team consists of a group of young adults that spent their childhood in a city dump until rescued by Pastor Carlos. As a family, they have set out to do great things. Aside from running the daily household the team provides nutritional support to children with disabilities and their families teaches sewing and facilitates the sale of fair trade products operates a 25-acre organic farm.
