Nicaragua Community Action for Reading

The purpose of this two-year project is to improve early grade reading outcomes and contribute to reducing citizen insecurity in five municipalities of the Región Autónoma Atlántica Sur of Nicaragua. DevTech is working in close partnership with local organizations to implement an evidence-based approach to conduct activities at the municipal, community, and school level to transition to a local-led model to educational development and citizen security. As a subcontractor, RTI’s focus is on crime and violence prevention activities, including crime studies and analysis, training and closely working with community facilitators in the consolidation or development of community security plans.
