Holiday and End of Year Appeal
Make an Donation to Compas on Behalf of a Loved One
fall we carried out our 7th dance tour. Audiences were treated
not only to the beauty of dance, but also to the important work of
Compas. There were so many opportunities for cultural exchange and
popular education. The tour reminded us of the importance of everything Compas
Now, we want to remind you that only through your support can we continue to do what we do.
The work that Compas supports through our two projects, Women in Action and the La Paz Farmers, are part of an emerging social and economic model based on cooperative living, sustainable community development, and environmental preservation. Compas gives us a chance to support sustainable development and participate in cultural exchange while contributing to a worldwide effort to develop a better way to live.
The Nicaragua service trips and US tours bring people together and create friendships with people who we might otherwise think of as “other.” Service trip volunteers offer skills, friendship and economic support, while our Nicaraguan friends offer us insight into a different culture that emphasizes friendship, cooperation, family, and love for each other over greed and material wealth.
Our micro-lending and education programs give hope and opportunity for people young and old to have access to education and a chance to succeed through small business and farm development. The bio-gas, reforestation, and agro ecology projects are helping to support a more sustainable way of life.
In these current times, it is now more important than ever to support Compas de Nicaragua’s work. Please help us continue what we do by giving a holiday donation to Compas in honor of a friend or family member.
Give a truly special gift this holiday season, and not only will your friends or family be honored, but someone will be given the gift of hope! Compas will send the recipient a special card acknowledging the donation made in their behalf. For donations of $100 or more, we will send the recipient a pound of our Howling Monkey Coffee.
