Puesta del Sol, Nicaragua

Location -  Ometepe, Nicaragua

The Puesta del Sol community association was created by women in the community to provide more work opportunities for people on the island. With previous opportunities being scarce, many family members were forced to leave the area to find work in other regions, which split up families. 

Puesta del Sol has developed a homestay programme in La Paloma on Ometepe Island to attract tourists to the area and create jobs for the islanders. Our local partner provides a steady stream of travellers to the village which has made the community project a success. The funds raised through this programme benefit 17 families and additional funds are put back into developing training programmes relating to tourism, scholarships for young students, supporting the elderly and investing in local infrastructure such as the local school and park.
