What is CECIM?

Our organization
The Center for Education and Capacity-building in Honor of Sister Maura Clarke (CECIM), is a foundation that represents the community of Ciudad Sandino, both socially and with regards to its roots in Christianity. Every day, CECIM works to promote the development of the community.
CECIM has developed a strategy of strengthening and promoting the participation of the community in its work. This approach has a positive impact since the locals agree with CECIM´s mission. The team at CECIM has many years of experience in the educational and professional fields and remains committed to just causes.
