GAD Committee / Nicaragua
Camp CHACA (Chavalos a Caballeros, or Boys to Gentlemen) needs your help!
For the last 20 years, the world has made great advances on the issue of gender inequality through women’s empowerment programs. With a whole generation that has grown up with this mantra, we can see there has been progress, but sadly severe prejudice persists, evidenced by continuous domestic violence and gender discrimination in the workplace. The questions now are, “What is the problem? Why has it not worked like we wanted?”
Gender inequality has been addressed from the perspective that it is a women’s issue. Here with GAD Nicaragua, we host Camp GLOW to empower young women to confront the specific issues and challenges facing them as women in a culture of machismo. But this only addresses one side of the coin, one aspect of the greater issue.
It’s time to flip the coin.
