About Nicaragua

USAID's development program in Nicaragua, which focuses on democracy, education and security, is designed to:

  • Promote democracy by training young, emerging democratic leaders and providing technical assistance to bolster civil society engagement and improve local governance.
  • Improve HIV/AIDS prevention awareness, counseling and testing.
  • Provide educational opportunities for at-risk youth through scholarships for children in grades 4-6 and for high school students in Nicaragua’s South Atlantic Autonomous Region (RAAS) that are highly vulnerable to drug trafficking.
  • Promote public-private partnerships to increase investments in social sector programs.
