THE STORY:

NICA wrote -

NICA founded the Community Development Program [CDP] in 2006 to address the urgent need for food and construction materials of individuals living in rural Nicaragua. NICA identified community projects that individuals could do in exchange for necessities.

Residents clean streets, the health center, the public well, the schools, and the coast. They also plant trees in the rainy season to help deal with deforestation.

NICA pays residents in the form of benefits valued at U$70.00 each 13 weeks. The residents work 6 hours a week or 78 hours each period. NICA does not pay in cash since the objective of the program is to deliver items the residents need to improve their quality of life.

Over 30 homes have been built since the program's inception and hundreds have been repaired. 1000s of meals have been served from the food earned under this program.

This program has had measurable positive impact in rural Nicaragua, and is part of NICA's annual plan each year in El Transito.

Please help us fund 250 residents to work under this program in 2013.
