Granada, Nicaragua
Joined February 2019

Funciona Nicaragua started operations in 2009 to improve Nicaraguan citizens' lives. It has implemented projects on different sectors, as climate change, sustainable development or health.

Presence in: Nicaragua
Focus: Health

Funciona was founded in 2008. Its objective, according to its Statutes, is the planning and management of social, cultural and infrastructure projects that help strengthen human organizations based on equal rights. We conceive International Cooperation as an element that seeks justice in the face of solidarity in an integral manner, and that must encompass all individuals, companies and organizations, carrying out projects that make the peoples protagonists of their own development. We promote the professionalization of the sector, working efficiently with modern and transparent methods, creating multidisciplinary teams and with the collaboration of our Advisory Committee.

Funciona has its HQs in Madrid (Spain), as the administrative and fundraising branch, while full operating in Nicaragua, where we have ten people hired, and counts on the main office, Corazon Contento project building, a house for volunteers and a car.
