THE CASE FOR

SUSTAINABLe DEVELOPMENT

Casa Congo is a Nicaraguan conservation movement with a mission to empower communities with skills & tools for sustainable development. We run a school in El Astillero that provides conservation education and ecotourism services. ​Our practice is founded on four pillars: ecology, ocean advocacy, built environments and community.   

Our conservation efforts are focused on the Chacocente Wild Refuge and the ecosystem services it provides. By doing so, we create jobs that support the economic recovery of Nicaragua, whilst also regenerating the natural environment. We support local community leaders to become sustainability advocates and protagonists of their own change. 

We're a registered non-profit organization in Canada, and a social enterprise / community cooperative in Nicaragua.
