JUSTHOPE

JustHope forms partnerships between organizations in North America and three poor communities in Nicaragua to demonstrate how long-term partnerships grounded in solidarity, mutuality, and collaboration hold the key to combating extreme poverty through increased understanding and empowering self-determination with a focus on leadership development and sustainability.

Due to the effects of climate change, environmental degradation, and conventional farming practices, soils in this area of Nicaragua are depleted and denuded, and water tables have dropped to threatening levels. RJOF is working with these communities to improve food security, environmental restoration and economic development through Agroecology and improved water resourcing methodologies.  Click here for more information.
