For over twenty years The Nicaragua Network has been a leading organization in the United States committed to social and economic justice for the people of Nicaragua. The Network advocates for sound U.S. foreign policies toward Nicaragua and provides information and organizing tools to a network of 200 solidarity and peace and justice committees across the U.S. The Network organizes speaking tours of Nicaraguans in the U.S. and study tours to Nicaragua. Volunteer brigades help in the areas of health, construction or the environment. Two of the most important current areas of solidarity support are labor organizing in the Free Trade Zone of Managua and supporting the efforts of Nicaraguan environmental organizations. Internships vary according to length of time and the subject matter for those that are interested. Interns have a variety of opportunities ranging from learning how an international NGO works in Washington DC to field work in urban and rural Nicaragua. Please contact the Washington office for specific application and internship information.
