Nicaraguans, a mix of European, indigenous and Afro-Caribbean ethnicities, have struggled for decades to overcome economic, political and historical challenges and obstacles. The population of nearly six million lives a reality that’s juxtaposed between beautifully inspiring landscapes and the extreme poverty that tarnishes the country’s cities, towns and villages. Both the rural and urban poor, unable to look beyond their daily struggle to survive, live in an environment that’s inconceivable to those in developed nations. The populations Fabretto serves are neglected and malnourished. Sadly, rudimentary tools and rights – such as an education, medical care, and basic access to water and electricity – are unobtainable for much of the nation. Finding gainful and fulfilling employment, or investing in the next generation, has long been beyond reach for most Nicaraguans.
Fabretto’s focus on education, health, food security, and nutrition are successful examples of programs that transcend the endemic poverty of educational and personal development resources to create real and sustainable change. Fabretto is dedicated unconditionally to enriching the lives of children, youth and families so that they may develop their full potential through community-based training and access to quality education. Fabretto’s work to empower Nicaraguan children and youth to break the cycle of poverty has shown remarkable success. The programs we have developed to facilitate changes in attitude and actions, using available local resources, provide parents, families and teachers with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to envision and shape a better future for their children. Thanks to contributions and involvement from people like you, Fabretto today continues to spread the joy of a better future.
