Project Report | Jun 9, 2020

We are excited to share the news with you all- our community of supporters- that Soccer Without Borders Nicaragua has been named GlobalGiving's June 2020 Project of the Month!

Each month, GlobalGiving highlights one high-quality project that has demonstrated deep impact, innovation, and high capacity during their time as a member of the GlobalGiving community. We are honored and thrilled to be joining this impressive group of change-makers dedicated to positively transforming communities across the globe. 

The news of our selection comes at a critical time for our project in Nicaragua. Since Nicaragua's political crisis escalated in 2018, in combination with the impact of COVID-19, our program has not been able to host several annual events that typically fund our year-round work. Despite these challenges, our team of mentor-coaches on the ground has adapted to serve our community in creative ways by increasing access to resources, providing virtual education and soccer opportunities, and facilitating regular connections with one another.

As a member of the Project of the Month Club this support will fill critical gaps here at SWB by going directly to our year-round soccer, education, and community-building activities for more than 450 girls in Granada and surrounding communities. It will also support our team to reach an additional 1,200 youth through our annual events, camps, and leagues across Nicaragua. 

It is with the support of our global community that our team has been able to advocate for women and girls in Nicaragua since 2008. As we navigate these challenging times, our team remains committed to cultivating safe spaces and ensure that each member of the SWB community feels connected and cared for. Thank you for continuing to champion gender inclusion on and off the pitch and serving as crucial members of the SWB team! We're glad you're here!
