Country Program Nicaragua

In Nicaragua, COMUNDO is committed to improving the living conditions of disadvantaged and marginalized population groups in rural and urban fringe areas. The goal is that these people can protect their own interests and play a role in social change.
The Program Manager and the Country Program Manager are responsible for the development and the implementation of the country program.

In view of the tense political situation in Nicaragua, we are closely monitoring the security situation for our local experts.
