You are empowering leaders
Community Development Committees (CDC) are an essential part of your support of rural villages in Nicaragua. The CDC’s receive trainings to identify the biggest needs in their villages, which can be a challenge because often there are so many! Thank you for your generous support of these leaders.
Eyning is a 19-year-old member of the CDC in his village of El Bramadero. The members of the CDC in El Bramadero have been able to secure water filters, emergency food packets and funds and materials to repair roofs after the devasting hurricanes of 2020.
El Bramadero received food packets to support families but they realized that it wasn’t enough for everyone in the community. Because the CDC was working together in an organized way they decided to split their food packets they received so that more people in the community could receive much needed food.
Eyning shared his experience as a community leader.
“My message to the donors, please continue supporting us. As I said before, the people are thankful with all of you and CEPAD.”
“Because we are working here in a very organized way, we thought that more people have needs, and for that reason we decided to divide our packages….The 6 of us got together, discussed it and decided. This is the way that we are doing it, it has been an achievement, and we are executing perfectly with the deliveries.”
Eyning is grateful for you and what you have made possible for his village.
“My message to the donors, please continue supporting us. As I said before, the people are thankful with all of you and CEPAD, and we need more support for the next few years...”
El Bramadero is in only their second year of training, but already they have benefitted from working together as leaders for their village. They will continue to receive training through 2025 and we will continue to share the accomplishments you have made possible in this village!
