President of World Vision International, Kevin Jenkins visited Nicaragua to know some of the initiatives developed by World Vision Nicaragua mainly oriented to minimize the high levels of violence against children and adolescents
“It was a very intense visit, we found very inspired stories that show the deep commitment with the communities to improve this situation, many times by doing some volunteer work” expressed Jenkins to answer the question how he would describe his experience on the field.
