‟CEPAD has helped us hugely we have seen great change — especially the women. Before we didn’t know how to grow plants and run family gardens. Now we can move forward.” Securro, La Joya — CEPAD
Nicaragua is the fourth most at-risk nation in the world due to changing climates. And while the world is talking about the need for drastic action on climate change the people of Nicaragua have been living with its escalating consequences for decades.
Water For Life: Appeal for Nicaragua
Over the last five years we have journeyed with, visited and shared the stories of seven communities in Nicaragua: Aguas Calientes, El Nancital, El Pochotal, Llano Grande, La Concepcion, La Joya and Mercedes del Rancho. As our time supporting these communities draws to a close, we are determined to ensure they have what they need going forward and to encourage supporters to journey with seven new communities over the next five years.
These communities still need: 15 micro dams and seed packages for 28 farmers (benefitting 112 families); seed packages for 35 women to start family gardens, (improving their family’s nutrition and providing an income); training for 21 women to start small businesses making jewelry and handicrafts.
£150 will pay for the materials for one micro dam
£65 will provide seed packages for one farmer
£30 will provide two women with seed packages to create their family gardens
Please make a one-off donation to the Water For Life appeal or support the next seven communities by becoming a committed giver today.
We walk with a community until it has the skills to walk without us and the people can claim the rights they did not know existed.”
Rev. Dr Gustavo Parajon, CEPAD Founder
We work alongside grass-roots partners in Palestine, South Africa, Nicaragua, Burundi, India and Tanzania.
Reaching children on the streets, addressing their trauma, working with them and their families to reintegrate them into their homes, to realise their rights and recover their future.
Working with local and international peace activists, and partnering with grass-roots projects, to call for a just peace, reconciliation and full equal rights for all Palestinians and Israelis.
Addressing the impact of climate change and the causes of extreme poverty, building sustainable rural communities and empowering them to realise their rights.
Bringing people together to meet our partners from around the world, visiting the communities they work in and seeing their projects in action — building solidarity and lasting friendships.
At the core of Amos Trust’s work are the individuals who support us. Our work is made possible by you. Large or small, your donation makes a real difference.
