The story of Círculo de Amigas (Circle of Friends) is the story of how one woman (OCUUC's own Pat McCully) resolved to teach a group of rural Nicaraguan women to sew, growing to encompass much more than just clothing. Today Círculo is improving health; stimulating minds; building homes; empowering communities; and even saving the rain forest!

Círculo's work takes place in Jinotega, Nicaragua, a small mountain community about four hours north of the Nicaraguan capital, Managua. Their mission is to alleviate poverty in Nicaragua by helping women acquire skills and tools needed to improve their lives; enabling children to go to school; providing community health services; and giving direct aid to victims of severe family hardship or regional crisis.
