Summary

The recent COVID-19 outbreak has worsened the economic struggles of Managua street vendors who put themselves at risk to earn a living and rely on a daily income to survive. This project will distribute hygiene kits and education resources to economically vulnerable street vendors to provide them with the necessary resources to face the current pandemic, as well as to increase the awareness on preventing the transmission of the virus.

Challenge

Street vendors make up a significant low income group of underemployment laborers in Managua, Nicaragua (around 40% according to FUNIDES 2019), and are one the communities that struggle at the front line of this pandemic. They worked under high risk conditions for not being able to afford protective equipment, neither they can access to public facilities for hand-washin and other hygiene. Their incomes have lowered drastically due to the decrease of costumers demand that is afraid of contagion.

Solution

This initiative will alleviate some of the basic needs this group of vulnerable workers have, which is having appropriate protective equipment or items to practice self hygiene and prevent the infection of COVID-19.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide 200 street vendors or more with essential supplies to keep them safe while working, and prevent the infection of COVID-19.
