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 Virginia (story at right), who learned to grow healthy food for her family. Her children used to face hunger and malnutrition but thanks to training she has overcome those challenges.
There are many more mothers like Virginia who need your support. To learn more about programs supported by CEPAD USA please visit our Supported Projects page.
Virginia received training from CEPAD and learned how to create a small garden for her family next to her home. Here is what she said about how it benefitted them.
"We are eating healthy foods because the inputs we are applying for pest management we are also making ourselves, organic compost and natural insecticides."
