EMPOWER WOMEN WITH EDUCATION TO BREAK CYCLES OF VIOLENCE

This summer 2018, we’re raising funds to support our new programmes in response to the socio-political crisis that ensued in Nicaragua in April 2018.

The current situation in Nicaragua

In April, a devastating sociopolitical crisis unfolded in Nicaragua. Over the last 4 months more than 250,000 Nicaraguans have lost their jobs, over 400 people have been killed, there are reports of over 1000 people missing, roadblocks sprung up across the country and the economy plummeted. Commerce has been next to nothing in Managua and the rest of the country.

Our response

With the current sociopolitical context we have redesigned our job skill training programme together with current and new employment partners to ensure jobs for the class for 2018. We are adding an entrepreneurship component together with a local NGO partner and, a job skill refresher programme for EEP graduates who have lost their jobs due to their places of work closing. We have the structure in place to impart these ‘crisis courses’ over 12 weeks before the end of the year.

More than ever, we need support from our donor community. We need your help to continue empowering and educating women out of high-risk violent backgrounds.

Together, we’ve positively affected – and potentially saved – the lives of more than 230 women. But there are still hundreds more who need us! If you would like to donate to the project, please go to our DONATION PAGE.

Thank you to those who have supported us through thick and thin.
