The Quest for Peace is a program of liberating development. We seek to build a policy of peace and friendship between the people of the United States and Nicaragua by working for change that empowers people to realize a world of greater opportunity and justice. To accomplish these goals, we focus our efforts on programs that create opportunities for and improve capabilities of those who have the least, without regard to religious or political affiliation. We have also oriented our programs to focus on development projects that improve the lives of women directly.
