WHO WE ARE
Círculo de Amigas Foundation
Our mission is to alleviate poverty for girls in Nicaragua through education, improved access to healthcare, and programs aimed to empower women. We achieve this goal through financial assistance to supporting organizations and the generous contribution of our volunteers and donors.
This mission is primarily achieved through our sponsorship program. Students who receive support through Círculo de Amígas are connected with a sponsor in the United States. These students receive a monthly educational scholarship and access to a variety of educational resources through our center in Jinotega.
Our goal is provide holistic support that enables and empowers our students to finish secondary school and attend university.
4,960 total direct and indirect beneficiaries in 2017.
These individuals include our sponsored students, participants of workshops, attendees of health clinics, visitors of our community library, hospital patients who received supplies from our student’s community service projects, and more!
The Círculo de Amigas Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization that is tax exempt. Our board of directors and officers are all volunteers.
In Jinotega, our center is run by a dedicated local staff (pictured here). Our Director, Fany Morales, has been with Círculo de Amigas for over 20 years.
Success Through Partnership
We work closely with our partner, the Nicaraguan Center for Education and Social Promotion (CEPS), in order to make sure we are providing the greatest benefit to the community, while always maintaining our focus on empowerment and the rights of our students.
