New Skills Teams




"Difficulties mastered are opportunities won."   - Winston Churchill

Daily life is difficult for the very poor of Nicaragua. There is never enough money or food. Jobs are scarce and the pay is very low. Each day is the same struggle except sometimes it gets harder.

New Skills teams are committed to bringing change to the neediest of communities by teaching skills that will assist them in earning an income. Currently teams are working with women teaching sewing and basic hair cutting techniques. Training teams work with their student groups equipping them with the skills  necessary to start their own small businesses or participate in a business co-operative.  

Please contact us if you would like to join an established team, would like to form your own team or have a new skill idea that you think would provide opportunities for the people of Nicaragua.

New Skills teams provide trainers as well as enough equipment to start the new business ventures. They are an exciting way to share your talents and build relationships and give a gift that can change a life.
