Nicaraguan Women at the Heart: A Story of Accompaniment
“At the heart of our work are the women,” explains Gilda Larios, ESPERA Team Lead. This is the profoundly intentional notion behind our work.
Our partners are women’s organizations formed to meet a need within their community. Their work is organic and responsive, and so is our support. We collaborate to meet new and changing needs.
Confronting Conflict with Community
“These women are so community minded,” Stock says. “Everything they do, they are a community of women; they’re a group.”
We deliberately and intentionally address systemic injustice by supporting women who change policies, build capacity, amplify women’s voices, and more in order to create lasting social change.
