Your support reaches remote communities in Nicaragua through the human rights radio program run by our partners Wangki Tangni.
The radio programming shares valuable information, like where women and girls fleeing violence can find shelter and how they can reach our local partners. And because of your support, we have distributed over 200 radios to Indigenous women, so they can tune into our broadcasts.
Feminist futures emerge when we build stronger intergenerational relationships and empower girls to speak up and demand their rights. Oftentimes, young girls facing gender discrimination may not feel comfortable speaking out, even to their own parents. But with small, everyday actions, that can change. Recently, a family was listening to the radio program, and it sparked a discussion about harassment. Their 11-year-old daughter opened up about the harassment she was facing from a boy at school. She asked them for help, and they took her to our local partners, who are helping her to resolve the situation and to feel supported. Thanks to you, girls in rural Nicaragua are learning how to speak up and demand their rights.
