Louise Nielsen was blessed with a generous and compassionate heart, which played a significant role in the establishment of Winds of Peace. Among her most fervent hopes was that the young people of Nicaragua- young women especially- would have greater access to learning. In that spirit, this independent fund is administered by WPF.
The purpose of the initiative is to create and fund a research, development and implementation initiative, under the auspices of Winds of Peace Foundation, which will contribute to the transformation of Nicaraguan education by increasing practical access to and quality of education, and utilizing development of Nicaraguan ideas, programs, educators and strategies toward those ends. Elements of this program may include scholarship funding, education research, collaboration with Nicaraguan entities engaged in education development, creation of seminars or workshops, teacher training or other related activities.
