About the Event
“The Daughters of Corn Nicaragua Dance Troupe” is sponsored by Compas de Nicaragua (Friends of Nicaragua—www.compas1.org). Compas is a NH 501c3 non-profit organization that formed in 1992. Compas’ mission is to promote cultural exchange and improve lives through service trips and sustainable community development.
Compas supports “Women in Action,” a group of 40 women who live and organize health and education projects in the poorest settlement of La Primavera (Springtime); a poor, urban neighborhood of Managua, Nicaragua. Compas also supports sustainable living projects through a farmer’s coop in the rural town of La Paz. Since 1992, Compas has also organized over 100 service learning trips to Nicaragua.
One of Compas’ many projects is a cultural renewal initiative. The Daughter of Corn Dance Troupe is the result of this project. This is the 7th tour that brings Nicaraguans to the U.S. to perform cultural dancing, share culture, and promote the work of Compas.
