Child advocates

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 young people to succeed

In Nicaragua, there’s an urgent need to empower young women and girls to support themselves. We’re doing that through our program, projects and a virtual platform we built to promote skills development and employability. Our goal? Spur girls — and all young people — to break barriers, inspire positive change and improve their lives.
