Sustainable Affordable Housing for Nicaragua
 
Affordable housing for low income families in Nicaragua is in very short supply. Sustainable natural construction materials are rarely used, leading to environmental damage caused by those homes that are constructed. SosteNica is developing a model for sustainable affordable housing, using natural materials and incorporating eco-technologies such as composting toilet, rainwater caption, plant based grey water treatment, fuel efficient cook stoves, and edible landscaping. project reportread updates from the field
School gardens for rural Nicaraguan communities
 
SosteNica promotes food security in Nicaragua. Working with elementary school teachers we deliver educational workshops and technical assistance to establish and support elementary school gardens. These gardens teach students, teachers and parents how to produce nutritious food without chemicals . In 2015 we trained two rural elementary schools (La Chilama and Silvio Mayorga) and one urban school (Camilo Ortega). For 2016 we will expand the program to reach out to even more schools. project reportread updates from the field
