About Us


UPNicaragua is a non-profit social enterprise focused on the empowerment of young girls in Granada, Nicaragua.  UPN was founded in 2015 with the goal to create education and mentorship opportunities for girls living in the tourist-booming city of Granada.

At UPN we work with Nicaraguan girls who are talented and have leadership potential but lack access to resources, opportunities and who could benefit from a strong community .

We generate 75% of our financial needs through our handmade fashion product line.
