Nica Life's mission is to create a global community where women empower women through the exchange of intentional and inspiring products for a living wage.
In addition, we use a portion of our profits to fund education programs. In October of 2019 we launched our Well-Being & Empowerment Program. This program focuses on achieving mental well-being to facilitate achieving goals. The program is made up of several strategies to cope with living in situations of stress, such as the civil unrest facing Nicaraguans today. These strategies include 1) workshops on focus and achieving goals, 2) the entire family working with a licensed phycologist to create a network of support and 3) yoga & mediation classes.

UPNicaragua's mission is to empower a young generation of Nicaraguan girls with professional and personal skills which allow them to grow into safe and meaningful futures.
In January, UPNicaragua launched their first 18 month fellowship. This program is designed for girls aged 13-18 whom are chosen both for their desire to learn and their desire to help others. The program is made up of 760 education hours divided into 3 content blocks designed to teach social education, professional skills, and emotional skills. Learn more about the fellowship here.
