What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America. 70% of the population lives in poverty. Promising youth often learn vocational skills such as carpentry, farming, leather and shoe repair. Too often, dreams are shattered because the expensive tools required to put their skills into practice, to create an enterprise that will help feed their families, remain out of reach. As a result, the entire family suffers.
How will this project solve this problem?
Your participation in ASAP's 1st annual "Circle Our World With Love" campaign will support the "Tools For Artisans and Farmers in Nicaragua" project #2183 on Global Giving. Your participation will help provide the tools needed by entrepreneurs, subsistence farmers and artisans to practice their craft, survive and thrive.
