We are finalists in NatGeo’s Geotourism Challenge on Ashoka’s Changemakers website. If we win this challenge, we will receive funding for our watershed and coastal restoration work from the National Geographic foundation, the Multilateral Investment Fund, and the Inter-American Development Bank.

The ELLAS Initiative up for a vote is centered around empowering female enviropreneurs to harness market forces and employ voluntary solutions to environmental programs in their local communities.

Please take a few moments to visit the Changemakers website and vote for our project. A couple minutes of your time could mean a healthier ecosystem and a healthier economy for the people of Rivas, Nicaragua.
