Meet the XtraOrdinary Women

Meet the participants who have gone through our job training programs and entrepreneurship bootcamps thanks to the support of our donors. Women living in cycles of extreme poverty and domestic violence.

They decided to flip their odds for a brighter, happier and self-sustaining futures. In our training programs they learn about self-esteem, finances, teamwork, conflict resolution and job preparation. Once they graduate, they receive support in finding a stable job through our employment partners in Nicaragua, and search support  for job openings online. We believe that the right opportunity can empower a woman.
