- COUNTRY SNAPSHOT
We provide children with tools and training they need to access education, overcome barriers and be a voice for change. We’ve had an office in Nicaragua since 1994.
We empower youth
In Nicaragua, there’s an urgent need to understand issues facing youth — such as employability and gender equality. So, our goal is to empower young people with skills and knowledge to make informed decisions, break barriers they face and inspire positive change that will improve their lives for the better.
