Earth Education Project
We are a UK registered charity who run an employability scholarship programme for women from marginalised areas in Managua, Nicaragua. We started as a crafts charity creating products from 100% recycled paper to provide an income for women living in La Chureca, Central America’s largest open-air rubbish dump.
We’ve evolved since we first started in 2009, and have developed a comprehensive educational methodology to offer long-term and sustainable solutions to the lack of opportunities many women face in La Chureca and other deprived neighbourhoods. We combine income with education over our year-long scholarship programme to offer training on skills needed for full-time employment. Why? To provide women with a stable income and therefore the possibility to escape the devastating cycle of poverty.

These are cost-free, include a stipend to assure assistance, and a series of milestone commitments to maintain enrollment. The programs include subjects and soft-skills such as: literacy, communication, self-esteem, team-work, labor orientation, life planning and financial planning.
