Partner Profile: La Fundación Entre Mujeres (FEM)
Objective: To support women’s rights and reduce poverty and injustice
FEM is like a village of women supporting themselves and others to escape violence, become financially independent and realize their rights. Together, Cuso International volunteers and members of FEM promote economic and political empowerment through education programs for rural women. Women learn how to access land to farm, form farming collectives and promote sustainable production initiatives in northern Nicaragua.
With the support of FEM and Cuso International, hundreds of women in Nicaragua have broken through unfair social and economic barriers and are lifting themselves and each other out of poverty.
