Project Description

Nicaragua’s southern Caribbean coastal region has some of the highest rates of inequality and entrenched poverty in the country, especially for rural mestizo and Indigenous youths at risk of dropping out of school. Asociación Familia Padre Fabretto (Fabretto) is introducing key adjustments to its five-year education program, as well as its abbreviated technical education program, to prepare rural youth for employment or agricultural activities. Fabretto is implementing a high school-track program, extending its technical program and incorporating more technology into it, increasing young women’s participation in its programs, and engaging the community to foster sustainable agriculture and adaptation to changing weather patterns.
