About the Organization
Founded in 2007, Clínica Verde’s mission is to serve as a “new model of care for families in need.”
Clínica Verde is a global healthcare organization that has created and operates a prototype of a sustainably designed clinic in Boaco, Nicaragua with a focus on providing high-quality maternal and pediatric clinical and preventive health education services. What Clínica Verde offers is wholly unique among health centers for the underserved in this region: a staff guided by compassion and dignity for the poor; a clinic grounded in principles of sustainable and human-centered design; and the provision of nutrition and health education to enhance self-efficacy and preventive health.
We seek a part-time Impact Director capable of growing our existing development strategy, creating effective partnerships and providing U.S.-based leadership.
We are guided by the belief that everything we do and produce as a response to poverty and human suffering should acknowledge the value and potential of each life while demonstrating respect for the shared resources of our world.
Our core values that guide us as an organization are to be: compassionate, innovative, sustainable, and ethical.
Clinica Verde offers high-quality medical care and health education, promoting a sense of dignity and respect to those in need. Our services include:
- Women’s Health
- Children’s Health
- Adolescent Health
- Care for Adults
- Laboratory Services
In addition to our direct medical services, we run a number of programs that enable us to increase our outreach to and impact within the community both in the Boaco region and abroad. Some examples of these programs include:
- Bio-intensive Garden
- Maternal Infant Nutrition Program
- HIGHER (Helping in Global Health, Education, and Reform) Program
Current Annual Operating Budget: $280,000
[Budget is covered by fundraising from both individuals and foundations. 26% of clinic operating costs is currently covered by earned income at the clinic.]
Clinica Verde employs 14 people in Nicaragua and 1 FTE (CEO) in the U.S., a grant writer on contract, and interns.
