About La Nueva Independencia

La Nueva Independencia means “The New Independence” in Spanish. This community gained its independence from a neighboring community, Chiantla.

It took them more than 10 years (1995-2005) to officially separate.

Coffee is the main crop in the community. Some community members work as electricians and blacksmiths. All families in the community are close and help each other. Most mothers work at the home.

La Nueva Independencia has partnered with 410 Bridge since 2018.

Sponsor the Community of La Nueva

When you sponsor the La Nueva community through 410 Bridge, you support programs and projects that allow the people to fix their own unique set of barriers. Every chance we get, we want to empower and lift up people to recognize that God has given them giftings and skills to move their communities forward to a better and more self-sustaining place.

Sponsoring the La Nueva community, whether for $18, $23, $35, or more a month, allows for this to happen.
