Support Compas de Nicaragua!
And help our friends in Nicaragua during a difficult time
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
Visit 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.
Please 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!
