Inspired by my involvement, since 2011, with the Bolivian Quaker Education Fund, and a love of Spanish language and Latin American culture, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to join the delegation.

ProNica grew out of the deep concern of a group of US Quakers from Southeastern Yearly Meeting over the international exploitation of the Nicaraguan people and resources, and their wish to respond in practical and constructive ways.

The work began in 1985 and is rooted in Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and care of the earth. ProNica functions as an umbrella organisation to support grassroots projects run by Nicaraguan people.
