Description du stage : The local partner, Center for Supporting Programs and Projects (CAPRI)is working in 7 neighbourhoods with a collective population of approximately 700 families, in the town of Pueblo Nuevo, located 220 kms. North of Managua. These neighbourhoods are the catchment area for CAPRI & CCFC's local community development program. Community organization is the goal of the program, with health constituting one of its sectors of focus. Prevention of the spread of HIV/AIDS is a national priority and a prevention campaign has been planned at the local level in order to raise awareness amongst community members and, particularly, youth. Youth in Pueblo Nuevo tend to migrate to big cities in order to secure study or employment opportunities. Preparing these youth to care for themselves in an holistic manner is the community's responsibility and, hence a major focus of CAPRI's work in the area.
CAPRI enables communities to take responsibility of their lives and encourages community-led, participatory development. CAPRI is committed to and has been successful in applying principles of community ownership, development and sustainability.
