Dear Members and Friends,
The Annual Report features the wide array of projects taking place between Wisconsin and Nicaragua. Next year as we recognize the 50-year mark of W/NP presence in Nicaragua, the strength of the Partnership remains strong thanks to the many people who believe in, support and participate in the humanitarian work of W/NP.
The strength of the partnership is in its members, who make it possible with their support to fulfill our mission and commitment to serving others and improving the quality of life for all involved.
One of our long time volunteers said it best, “ Yes, it takes a lot of hands working together to make good things happen. "
Thank you and all the best to you.
Dr. Brad Martin, W/NP President

The Nicaraguan participants in the Learning Center Project are immensely grateful to all the women across Wisconsin that share in various ways to help this project continue. Some provide finances so supplies can be purchased in Nicaragua, others donate, transport, or pack sewing machines, craft supplies, fabric & notions, and still others travel and share time teaching. Each and every expression of support, so generously given, is vital, appreciated and important.
Learning Center classes are designed to include skill-building, personal dignity, and self-sufficiency, with a focus on employment for (rural) women and men. The program is focused on the care of families and communities, the encouragement of members to assume leadership responsibilities and strives for international understanding and friendship.
Nicaragua may not be the "Land of Milk and Honey" but it's on the way. Here's a picture of beekeeper Francisco with his first frames of honey. Chad C. from Madison, Wisconsin has been working with Francisco getting him started in bees.
Estos son los panale yeno de miel. "These are the frames full of honey." Thanks to Chad for the photo and translation.
A special thanks to George and Joanie from Stevens Point, Wisconsin for donating a honey extractor to the Nicaragua Bee Project. Muchas Gracias.
There's still opportunity for you to donate funds or bee equipment to the project. All donations are tax deductible and go directly to the Nicaragua Bee Project, supported by the Wisconsin-Nicaragua Partners of the Americas, Inc. Marty Havlovic
