What is CEPAD-USA?
Connecting Two Countries
CEPAD USA is a US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports the work of non-profit organizations in Nicaragua with training to improve lives, build sustainable communities and escape poverty. We want to connect you to the life-changing work that is happening in Nicaragua.
Together we change lives
You can change lives by giving to support families and villages in Nicaragua, the second-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
We need you to provide training for women like Concepción (story at right), who started a small business in her neighborhood. She now has a stable income for her family.
There are many more mothers like Concepción who need your support. To learn more about programs supported by CEPAD USA please visit our Supported Projects page.
Concepción received training from CEPAD and learned how to start her own small business, selling tortillas. Her business has grown so much that she has expanded her corner store to include other household items.
“The first day, I started by making 35 tortillas...Now, I have to make around 300 tortillas each day to keep up. I also make them for special orders or events.”
