Winds of Peace extends grants to Nicaraguan groups and organizations that seek grassroots, sustainable development. Staff members located in Nicaragua and an evaluation committee assembled in Minnesota combine efforts to fund initiatives which respond to community member needs and objectives. The ability to stay connected with grant recipients through Nicaraguan staff permits WPF to experience the cultural and economic challenges facing its partners.
The foundation was started by Harold and Louise Nielsen (left and center), of Kenyon, Minnesota. Bobbie Jones (right) is the foundation’s do-everything staff person and webmaster. Click photos to enlarge.
