Abstract

Highlights the importance of education and training for women as an integral part of local and national development. Using Nicaragua as a leading example, outlining the recent history of the country in order to explain its particular approach to education. Presents the organizational model of multiplication of learning, the philosophical model of participative learning and the communication model of accessibility of learning materails. Concludes that through such education, women in Nicaragua reflect a high level of political awareness, defining issues and implementing creative solutions with a courage which should be envied by others.
