We assist in creating and sustaining programs initiated by and for the Nicaraguan people. Priorities are community organizing, economic development, non-violence training, women's health, education, sustainable agriculture and women's empowerment. We help to educate North Americans about the history and current reality of Nicaragua, and the impact of U.S. foreign policy in Nicaragua and the region.
ProNica was founded in 1986 under the auspices of the Southeastern Yearly Meeting (SEYM) of the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers, in order to ship medical, educational, and technical aid to communities in need. ProNica became an independent non-profit corporation in 2002. In 2006, ProNica became an officially registered Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Nicaragua.
