Partnership, Development, Empowerment
Leicester Masaya Link Group
A twinning organisation bringing communities together to develop educational and sustainable development projects in Leicester and Masaya
Who We Are
We work in partnership to facilitate projects for sustainable development in the Masaya region and we raise awareness of global issues through educational projects across all sectors of the community in Leicester and the surrounding area.
What We Do
In Leicester, the LMLG raises public awareness of the link and related global issues across all sectors of the community.
We work in partnership with local organisations in Masaya to facilitate practical projects that promote sustainable development and empower the people they involve
We help with building water tanks with subsistence farmers, organise training in livestock rearing and income generation projects for women, creating organic gardens and tree planting projects in rural schools and installing photovoltaic panels in areas without electricity.
Strengthen Local Partners
We use our experience of development and knowledge of Nicaragua to provide a rich source of materials and programmes for schools, youth and community groups.
Support Educational Programmes
In Leicester and Masaya, the LMLG support and organise educational programmes that help to further the development and knowledge of children and the wider communities.
Facilitate Sustainable Development
In all projects, the LMLG strives to uphold best practice in development, encouraging community participation to find local solutions and using a revolving fund scheme to ensure financial sustainability.
