Related Activities

Dianova Nicaragua’s “Health and Welfare Networks for Adolescents, Youth and their Families” project is aimed at young people from Laguna 1 and Laguna 2 communities in Granada. Its goal is to create the conditions for young people to develop and consolidate the skills that will allow them to become the actors in the promotion, exercise and defence of their rights in order to achieve integral development.

The 75 beneficiaries of the project engage in active cooperation with parents, teachers and other members of the community and civil society in finding solutions to their problems and the most urgent needs.

The project addresses issues related to alcohol and drug abuse, sexuality education, gender equality, and sexual and reproductive health, thus contributing to SDG 3 (Good health and well-being) targets 1, 4 and 5, and SDG 5 (Gender equality) targets 1 and 2. In addition, through its target audience (adolescents from disadvantaged communities) and its means of action, the project made cross-cutting contributions to SDG 1 (End of poverty) and SDG 4 (Quality education).
