Education for young people
The poverty and unemployment in Nicaragua have a particularly hard impact on young people. When parents abandon their families to go looking for work, the children have to take on responsibility for the rest of the family. This means that girls, especially, stop going to school and look after the house instead or take a poorly paid job. Our partner organisation Asociacon Infantil "Tuktan Sirpi" in Jinotega and Yali develops the skills of young people, strengthens awareness of their rights and gives them also the opportunity to take some professional training.
