As we reflect on our 2020 delegation, what stands out is the steady determination and resourcefulness of our Nicaraguan partners. Working on a wide range of issues– economic justice, women’s rights, education, disability rights, conservation and climate change– our partners empower the most marginalized and build sustainable communities in this beautiful country that they love.
But as they welcomed us into their homes, offices, schools and gardens, our partners also shared their fears and challenges. Ongoing political tension, rising poverty levels and decreased funding for the region have led to depleted resources and program cuts. The support of our PeaceWorks community is needed more than ever before.
And so we invite you to to share our journey, to be inspired, to get involved. People to people. New Jersey to Nicaragua.
