GOCARE Inc. Presents Nicaragua Education Video

CEO Jan Lindsay to discuss recent GOCARE education projects at Santa Barbara Sunrise Rotary Club meeting on Feb. 20, will go on to present at 28 clubs in Central Coast and Central Valley during Tour

At the upcoming Santa Barbara Sunrise Rotary Club meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 20, Jan Lindsay, CEO of GOCARE Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)3 charity, will discuss and show recent video that was shot at the GOCARE education center in Nicaragua and the community. The presentation will take place at 7 a.m. at 1105 Chapala St. in Santa Barbara.


During the presentation, Lindsay will explain how GOCARE helps lift disadvantaged adults and children out of poverty through the empowerment of education. He will also discuss and show the poverty in the Nicaraguan community, future education projects that are being designed and how the Nicaragua Ministry of Education plays a role by providing materials for adult education courses.

Following his presentation, Lindsay will embark on a fundraising road trip to a total of 28 other Rotary Clubs in Kern, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties in California. He will discuss the need to help these children and lead them into a successful future.

“The future our children is critical in leading them on a successful path,” Lindsay said. “We want to help make these children’s dreams come true through our comprehensive educational programs.”

Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America and the second poorest in the Western Hemisphere, with widespread war in the 1980s having destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure. Currently, about 50 percent of Nicaraguans live below the poverty line, while 80 percent live on less than $2 per day, according to the U.N. Development Programme.
