In this photograph, we feature an awards ceremony honoring three children for their participation in the library activities. We awarded Nathalia for her dedication in baking class and in the library, being one of the youngest participants. We honored Samira for her support and attendance in the library, having been a great help to Jael. We gave Rodmi an award for his enthusiasm and spark that he brings to the group at every meeting at the library.
Thank you for your interest and support
2015 has been a milestone year as we look back on 50 years of continuous activity between Wisconsin and Nicaragua. The early founders of W/NP were right on track in seeking how to help others help themselves, it’s what we are still doing today thanks to your help and support.

Dear Members and Friends,
The Annual Report features the wide array of projects taking place between Wisconsin and Nicaragua. Next year as we recognize the 50-year mark of W/NP presence in Nicaragua, the strength of the Partnership remains strong thanks to the many people who believe in, support and participate in the humanitarian work of W/NP.
The strength of the partnership is in its members, who make it possible with their support to fulfill our mission and commitment to serving others and improving the quality of life for all involved.
One of our long time volunteers said it best, “ Yes, it takes a lot of hands working together to make good things happen. "
Thank you and all the best to you.
Dr. Brad Martin, W/NP President
