Superemos – we will overcome

One of the legacies of the Sandinista revolution has been the ability of communities and co-operatives to organise to tackle the problems they face. Even during the dark days from 1990 to 2006, there were still gains made in health, education and jobs, though it was a tough struggle.

The improvement in literacy and health since the new Sandinista government took office in 2007 have been helped by the willingness of volunteers – brigadistas – to give their time and energy to social projects. Similar efforts can be seen in communities all over Nicaragua.

One such project is Superemos in Esteli. The Foundation works with low income families on health and education. To read more about their work click here. Wales Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign member David McKnight has posted another video, about Superemos, on our YouTube channel.
