Posibilidad has developed in an organic way.  It began with two sponsored students in 2007.  The Director met those girls in late 2006 and found them to be very worthy of support.  The sponsorship project has grown over the years and in 2012 an assistant, Lydia Mendez-Madriz, was hired.  Lydia is Nicaraguan and bilingual.   The Board of Directors also includes a Secretary and a Treasurer.

Recently retired after 28 years providing emergency care, Charlie Janney is a Family Nurse Practitioner. He also has an MSW degree with a speciality in child and family therapy. He participated in a program of assistance on the Pine Ridge Lakota Reservation sponsored through Boulder Friends Meeting. His research interests include the psychological determinants of political and social behavior. He now devotes much of his spare time to Posibilidad Nicaragüense. Charlie is at bottom right in the 2009 group photo above.

Nicaraguan Staff:
Hi…. I'm Lydia and I like my job. I have 8 years working as translator, guide and manager.   I´m also a masseuse. My beginnings were very nice, and a little bit difficult, because my family is poor. When I was 14 years old I was studying in secondary school and working with my mom selling tacos on the sidewalk, while saving money for my university studies. At the suggestion of Meg Boren, I became a translator. Meg's NGO, Circle Environment, is located in Illo Aponsentillo, Nicaragua. Her brigades consist of doctors and nurses whose help for poor communities inspires  young Nicaraguans to study nursing and medicine. I have also worked for Amigos for Christ, for the Canadian Lutheran Church and for a Norwegian seafood company, as translator & chief administrator. But now I am enjoying working with teen and young adult girls who are hungry for the opportunity to study for careers that they will like, and that will allow them to help their families & their communities. My hope is that this organization succeeds in making positive changes for our girls and their families. I hope that they will become good citizens and role models. Personally, I hope to return to university to study Social Work.

Nicaraguan Consultant:
