Círculo de Amigas (CdA) is a volunteer-run, registered 501(c)(3) secular non-profit, working to alleviate poverty in Nicaragua one girl at a time. In conjunction with the Nicaraguan Center for Education and Social Promotion (CEPS), we help girls and young women acquire the skills and tools needed to improve their lives. In doing so, we enable children to attend school and give direct aid to victims of severe hardship or regional crisis.

Academic success is ensured by our staff psychologist and students receive scholastic support from our full-time tutor. -The Ayudate Project Promotes family autonomy and nutritional health by teaching the art of family home gardening. -Recreational Reading Changing community literacy patterns with a full-time librarian, book club, contests, and news kiosk. -Lowering Pregnancy Rates In conjunction with US universities, the Peace Corps, and local health authorities, CdA is currently developing a program aimed at reducing teen pregnancy rates. -Community Health The Jinotega Department of Health is now providing free medical to the local community at our facility on a periodic basis.
