Bamboo Shelter for Battered Women in Nicaragua

Bamboo Shelter New Focus

The building of the Casa de la Mujer shelter is, again, on hold.  Some 80 local women have organized formally as an association and as a result, have rethought their program priorities.  No longer looking for a shelter, but rather a communal space that can be multi-purpose to support not only a shelter, but also a training facility for local women and a meeting space to sell their products.  The project will now require completion of the initial estimate of $11K to meet the Casa de la Mujer objectives.  We invite all prior donors to "double up" and help us make this possible for the women of Muelle de los Buyes.
