Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners of the Americas (W/NP) has been actively implementing programs in Nicaragua for over 50 years. W/NP brings together volunteers – citizens of both countries getting to know each other, working to find solutions to common problems, leveraging international and local resources, and providing technical training.

The list below is an example of the extensive work we do in Nicaragua. This list changes based on the needs and resources. Our objective is to improve the lives of the people, the communities and the environment through our actions here in Wisconsin and in Nicaragua.
