ICCO in Nicaragua

In Nicaragua, ICCO promotes opportunities for youth and women by supporting educational initiatives; it economically empowers young people in areas vulnerable to violence and strengthens technical abilities of small farmers in order to improve their access to inclusive markets.

What we do

Because Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, ICCO´s work in this nation is mainly focused on economic empowerment. One of ICCO´s star programs, Building Protection by Empowering People, supports young men and women so that they can be trained on how to start their own businesses and on how to become more competitive for the labor market.

ICCO also works closely with small farmers cooperatives by paving the way for their access to inclusive markets.

In Nicaragua, ICCO has also developed an innovative line of work with the private sector, promoting knowledge and building capacities on Business and Human Rights, in order to engage private companies more actively in the nation´s quest for sustainable development.
