Women in Action and their children need your help!
The political unrest in Nicaragua has stabilized, however, there are
still detrimental effects on the economy.
Those who are affected most are people like Women in Action and small farmers from La Paz, who live
day to day. Due to the State Department's travel advisory for Nicaragua, service trips for 2019 have cancelled. Servie trips make up over 60% of our budget, so moving forward it will be more difficult for us to support our friends in Nicaragua.
Compas is in real financial danger!
We have some new initiatives
to support our friends in Nicaragua and to help sustian our work.
Here is how you can help!
MAKE A DONATION!
Support our small business. “Peaceful Nature”. a venture between Women
in Action and farmers in La Paz. We are
hoping to raise $4,000 to kick start this business ($2,400 to hire two WIA
employees at $100/month, and $1,600 for advertising, packaging, transportation, etc.)
Provide a micro-loan to a member of Women in Action
Sponsor a Child so they can go to school
Purchase Howling Coffee as a Holiday gift!
Nicaragua! Now is the time to visit Nicaragua! Our friends need our support
now more than ever! Despite the State
Department's travel advisory, over the last several months, Nicaragua has returned
to being one of the safest Central American countries. If you are interested in coming and learning
about what has happened and about the current situation, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org ). We are also offering a
unique, alternative trip to Costa Rica.
Friends of Compas group! We have
started a "Friends of Compas” group as a way to bring our supporters
together to make new friends, to keep updated and stay more connected to our
friends in Nicaragua, and to find ways to support our work. This friendship
group will include a monthly online conference call and also an email list for sending
updates, articles of interest,
etc. If you are interested in
participating in "Friend of Compas", please contact me (email@example.com ). To ensure that we can continue our important work, we need your support now!
help Compas and Women in Action survive this time of unrest. Please consider making a donation and getting involved with Compas de Nicaragua.
Thank you in advance for your generous support!
