Mission

W/NP is a progressive and viable humanitarian service organization actively implementing programs in both Wisconsin and Nicaragua. W/NP's goals are to promote mutual understanding and establish lasting relationships among citizens and institutions of Wisconsin and Nicaragua; foster volunteerism and self-help attitudes through the implementation of economic and social development projects; leverage development assistance funds from the U.S. Government and other public and private sources.

Programs

W/NP helps people improve their quality of life in practical sustainable ways. We do this with a network of people-to-people programs that promote cultural awareness and community development through 100 Learning Centers located in Nicaragua, in addition to many other projects that serve health, agriculture, personal development, micro-lending and community programs. The primary beneficiaries are the people of Nicaragua who live adjacent to the W/NP Learning Centers where they can acquire skills that will influence their quality of life. A parallel impact occurs in Wisconsin where W/NP affiliates who through participation in program development and collaborative efforts support the Learning Centers and acquire an appreciation for the value of helping their fellow man. A vital mutual, and reciprocal relationship exists between Wisconsin and Nicaragua where people come to realize we need each other to achieve the outcomes that will ultimately affect thousands of people in need.
