The Peace Project is a registered Nicaraguan NGO which works to empower disadvantaged communities around the Laguna de Apoyo to seek better opportunities through education. We also work to promote peace and environmental awareness and contributing to the conservation of protected areas.
Our organisation receives no institutional or governmental funding so we rely heavily on donations and fundraising to run our programs. We have a scholarship program which supports high school education for 21 kids in the local community. Additionally, we run after school activities and community classes in English, computing, soccer and swimming, all completely free for participants.
Funds raised with the help of Comedy Abroad will go to fund tutors, transport, communications and other costs of running our programs.
