Earth Education Project
The Earth Education Project is a UK Charity working in Nicaragua empowering women with alternative education programmes and income opportunities through our project CHURECA CHIC. We teach women to make recycled paper products that change their 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. And as a charity we aim to make our model sustainable by becoming self -funding through the CHURECA CHIC sales.
In 2013 over 20 families living in the capital’s poorest neighbourhoods, received a stable income because their mother’s were given the chance to do learn. 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.
