Intercultural Exchanges - We sponsor and facilitate delegations from South to North and North to South. These visits accomplish many things:
Organizational Training - To enable a community create a functioning organization to achieve their goals.
It can help them to to set up a co-op or a legal entity, to construct a oven for firing pottery, to organize to install a water project, or to repair a road.
This group from Teustepe is celebrating their annual "retreat" to focus their energies and plan new membership initiatives. Song is an essential element of all of their meetings.
Leadership Training - We provide training to enable local leaders to organize and create community structures that will endure, that can advocate on behalf of their entire community.
This group of community leaders is planning their next community gathering, and discussing better means of communication.
Small loan program - Our micro finance effort enables local enterpreneurs to run small businesses. It
helps families acquire things to improve their lives, such as appliances, tools, and means of tansportation.
This is a group of women potters, who have used their loan program to construct a community kiln. These are some of their products.
Managua Center - We maintain a center in Managua to host visitors and conferences that support our
goals. This beautiful setting provides services for large and small groups that are engaged in our works.
The Center is also available for other groups with similar goals. Contact us if you are interested in hosting a visit to Nicaragua.
