Mer et Monde tested the development of a local learning community and an incubator for gender equality projects in Carazo, Nicaragua. Capacity building activities coupled with opportunities for practical application in micro-projects facilitated the transition from theory to practice for the participants. The innovative aspect lies particularly in the methodology chosen (experiential learning) and the collaborative work between six organizations in the Carazo region, for whom this was a first opportunity to come together to learn, build and experiment under the theme of gender equality.
