Carita Feliz is a privately funded nonprofit organization, located in Nicaragua. The center provides food, academic support, employment opportunities, and health services to low-income families in the city of Granada.[1][2]


Founded on March 9, 2001 by Peder Kolind, Carita Feliz started as a place where children would go to have a free dinner but then quickly expanded to become a nonprofit organization. The center employs more than 30 locals and supports over 1,500 children and teens by offering free meals, classes, recreational activities and dental services. Carita Feliz has given hundreds of scholarships since 2004.[3]

Carita Feliz mainly focuses on helping the younger generation, although they also support local adults in the community. The Center has sewing machines which local people can use to produce school uniforms and other goods to sell. The Center donates the profit they make to students by selling the food they produce in their cooking and baking classes. Carita Feliz also runs a new mothers club, where women are taught nutrition and basic child care. Another program at the center finds work and gives free meals to senior citizens.[4]
