We believe in giving an opportunity to those who have never had it. We believe in women, and in their eagerness to move their children forward. We believe in sharing knowledge that will serve and last a lifetime. We believe that work dignifies. We believe in soft skills, psycho-social support and art to inspire us.
We know an opportunity has the power to change a woman’s life, and the lives around her. Over the last 10 years we have supported hundreds of XtraOrdinary Women who have shown us the courage it takes to take a chance and the strength they have to make lasting, sustainable change, breaking away from cycles of poverty and violence.
We believe education and work bring sustainable change to the life of an underprivileged woman and the lives around her.
We achieve sustainable change thanks to our deep understanding of de core needs of participants, our closeness to the communities and strategic relations with private sector allies.
We empower women through skill training, phsychosocial support and job placement programs to break the circle of extreme poverty and domestic violence in their lives.
We run cost-free job skill training programmes and bootcamps for entrepreneurs for women living in marginalised areas of our capital city, Managua, Nicaragua. Our courses include a series of milestone commitments.
We assist women on a journey of empowerment to flip their odds. Armed with the tools and skillset they need, it is them that then break the cycle of extreme poverty and domestic violence, in exchange for a brighter, happier, self-sustainable future.
Our programmes focus on developing much needed soft-skills such as:
