young people live in poverty
Nicodemus began with a passion to change the future for marginalised young people and this vision remains the same today.
Nicodemus first embarked on a Youth Leadership & Community Action Programme with street children and youth in Guatemala. In 2013, while volunteering at a residential centre in Banbury, we realised that the young people who lived there were of a similar profile to those in Guatemala –they were just more hidden away. That realisation prompted us to run similar projects with partners in the UK.
There are now 114 young people being supported through our Youth Leadership Programme, and 11 partners working with us to reach marginalised youth in the UK. Nicodemus is continually partnering with new churches, schools and community groups to meet the needs of more young people in Guatemala and the UK.
Our mission is to rescue marginalised young people, help them restore their own lives and then equip and empower them to rebuild their communities.
