At the end of last year, MADRE traveled to Nicaragua to meet with women who take part in Harvesting Hope. That’s the Indigenous women’s farming project you support on the impoverished north coast of Nicaragua. We visited the community of Kisalaya, where we meet with women farmers to discuss the challenges they face and how they work together to overcome them.

With every new announcement and executive order, the Trump administration takes aim at the people that he threatened and marginalized during his campaign — Muslims, refugees, immigrants. And he strikes at the values that live deep in our hearts — human rights, inclusion, peace.
