Women from rural communities in the department of Matagalpa face violence and barriers to participation in income-generating activities. Centro Especializado de Atención a la Mujer (CEAMUJER) provides technical assistance for women to develop skills in leadership and violence prevention and promotes gender equality and economic independence for women. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance peace and security in Nicaragua. CEAMUJER’s activities strengthen excluded communities so they can improve their living conditions and participate equally in a nation’s political, economic and social life.
