Young people who have grown up in rural isolated villages struggle to gain the skills to improve their lives and break the cycle of poverty.
We’re training young farmers in sustainable farming methods and supporting them to engage in local markets.
María Garcia was brought up in the countryside and when she finished secondary school was unable to continue studying; her parents, for lack of work in Nicaragua, had left to work in Costa Rica, leaving Maria to look after her three sisters.
With your support we can provide vital training to young people like María so they can support themselves and their families and teach other young people in the community:
“I have learnt about planning my farm, strategies for agricultural production and business planning. With this new knowledge, I am now able to cultivate tomatoes, squash, bell peppers and Hibiscus flowers and I have shared what I have learnt with four young people in my community.
“My plot is very diverse. I use natural pesticides and I know how to do conservation work. The best thing is that I have done my own business plan. I know how to save and how to administer my business.
“I know that my family, the families of the young people I have taught and my community are grateful for the support of Y Care International.”
Please help Y Care International continue to support young people in Nicaragua and around the world break away from poverty and change their lives.
Thank you – your gift means so much to the young men and women we support around the world.
