I am a current grad school student at Pepperdine University where I am getting my Masters in Entrepreneurship! I would greatly appreciate any donations to help me fund my two week trip to Nicaragua (Jan 2013) where I will be working directly with the Nicaragua Initiative for Community Advancement (NICA). Your donation goes directly to NICA and is tax deductable.
NICAs mission is to empower Nicaragua through community development, helping the country become more self-sufficient and a greater participant in the global economy.
NICA focuses in five areas: Infrastructure, Education, Health care, Commerce, and Community Pride. Unlike many charitable organizations, NICA believes in giving opportunities, not gifts. In all our work, we are committed to helping communities become the agents of their own transformation. I would greatly appreciate any help I could get!! Thank you!!
