NIC148 Training vulnerable women

projectdescription

From Managua, the capital of Nicaragua, a project of entre­pre­neurship for under­pri­vi­leged women has been launched. In this project, the ICC (Christian Institute for Civic and Social Devel­opment Training) offers 60 women vocational training, which allows them to learn how to earn their living on their own. This way one helps them to live a better life. One motivates the women from the Bible to take respon­si­bility for their own lives.

why this project?

One focuses on three rural churches in the munici­pality of Tipitapa and the city of León where there is a lot of economic and social need. Women in parti­cular are often disad­van­taged econo­mi­cally and socially. Approp­riate technical and entre­pre­neurship training will enable women to integrate into the labor market. They also receive training for entering the labor market and help in finding a suitable workplace with a fair salary. This will change their economic and social situation for the better.

impact

By working together with the local church and community, a network of volun­teers is created, who motivate and equip the women out of God’s love. For the best possible and lasting result, they also work together with national and inter­na­tional organi­za­tions. One hopes that women will be equipped in such a way that they themselves become role models for other women and pass on the love of God to those around them.

what can we learn?

Project coordi­nator Humberto Flores has gained experience in three similar projects in other commu­nities. The successful experiences of that time are now used and can be applied in the future again in other churches and commu­nities. In this way, more and more women can be helped to perma­nently change their disad­van­taged situation in both economic and social terms.
