ICDP signed an agreement for training and cooperation with the “Instituto De Promocion Humana” (INPRHU), a non-governmental agency working in the area of social development.
”Our organization is inspired by Christian values and we are ecumenical and nondenominational. We facilitate and implement programmes in order to promote equal opportunities and citizen participation that enables individuals, organizations and Nicaraguan society to exercise all fundamental human rights. We are actively promoting alternative projects of social, economic, productive and environmental nature. We look forward to the ICDP training and hope that our educators will be able to replicate the ICDP programme to many families in our community.” – Aura Estela Mendoza, coordinator at INPRHU.
