* EH&D helps families, who live on the outskirts of Granada, Nicaragua, and who are currently squatting, to build their own houses, providing to them micro-credits without interest.
* EH&D is also helping these families with volunteer's assistance for getting a sustainable development through direct support, courses and technical education, small business and cooperatives, thereby increasing their expectation of a better future. Our goal is to create a model of integral and sustainable development for these districts
This project was started in Cambridge, MA (USA) by several people from USA, Spain and Nicaragua.
