The Earth Education Project is a UK Charity working in Nicaragua empowering women through our label CHURECA CHIC; handmade recycled paper products that change lives in one of the world’s poorest countries. To buy your exclusive CHURECA CHIC producs go to our STORE
Our mission is to empower Nicaraguan women living in impoverished and isolated communities with the education and social skills they need to enter the labour market
Our vision is to provide women with an income opportunity linked to a compulsory school and social education programme at a sustainable paper recycling workshop, CHURECA CHIC. Enabling women to break, for good, the systematic cycle of poverty affecting their families.
As a charity we aim to be self -funding by 2016 through the CHURECA CHIC sales.
In 2012, 10% of the families living on Central America’s largest rubbish dump, received a stable income because their mother’s were given the chance to do something other than scavenge for rubbish: they learnt to recycle paper with us, and received an income for doing so. In turn their children also stopped working and went to school.
