    Canada supports young Nicaraguans to help reduce crime and improve communities The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives proudly supports Nicaraguan youth to improve security and development in three of Managua’s poorest communities in District IV. Young women and men from the neighborhoods of Hilario Sánchez, Las Torres and Quinta Nina have formed an association called Jóvenes Unidos Pensando y Actuando (JUPAC). Through sports and recreation, they’ve broken down barriers and neighborhood rivalries to promote violence prevention and a culture of peace. Together, they've identified -- and are finding solutions -- to local challenges, in community security, environment, health, participation and recreation. JUPAC is using its voice to demand their rights for change, with the support of local partners (Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, the Institute of Human Promotion (Managua), local police officers, educators and the Ministry of the Family). So what’s changed? In the last four years, local gang activity and harassment have declined, local boys and girls, men and women are safer when walking in their streets and between neighborhoods, and there hasn't been a single murder – remarkable, for what were formerly Managua’s most dangerous neighborhoods. They’re proof once more that youth are the future for us all! Learn more about the Canada Fund’s support to the project https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRLBWDrDKAs and about JUPAC (in Spanish) https://www.facebook.com/pages/JUPAC-2015/907103339309203 y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HARIQyCnoYw&feature=youtu.be
