    ANF is a not-for-profit relief and development organization that
    provides opportunity to those affected by poverty in Nicaragua.
    Founded in 1992, ANF's work focuses on six program areas-
    education, health and nutrition, housing, water and sanitation,
    agriculture, and humanitarian aid-every day and during a crisis.

    By working with partner organizations, ANF implements over
    100 programs throughout Nicaragua each year, working toward
    the most vulnerable becoming self-sufficient and free of
    poverty. We believe in subsidiarity: finding local solutions to
    local problems, where decisions are made by the people closest
    to and most affected by a community's problems.
