A look at theJicaro Project, both past and present...


The Jicaro Project offers training, employment and community to the youth and single mothers of Granada’s poorest barrios. Specializing in the design and  production of quality artisanal handcrafts, the Project combines sustainable local resources with Nicaragua’s greatest treasure, the hand labor of its people. Proceeds from sales help to support these struggling families and youth, and provide funds for the Vida Joven Youth Clubs in Granada, as well as other community improvement projects.

As an addition to the program starting in 2011 and 2012, community and business leaders share presentations with project participants regarding job training, character development, and money management. Topics include interview skills, entrepreneurship, budgeting, being faithful with a little/promotions, and encouragement to all participants who opened bank accounts through the program.
