Once Again Nut Butter has been working with the Jubilee House, a charity located outside Managua, Nicaragua, for over 20 years. Their program, Center for Development in Central America (CDCA) http://www.jhc-cdca.org/, addresses the educational, social, and medical needs of the second poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. The program goal is to help communities become self-sufficient, sustainable, and democratic. We, at Once Again, share their core belief that all people have the basic right to clean water, sanitation, food, education, employment, clothing, and housing. Co-op development is one tool used to build and maintain communities. Jubilee House has a medical clinic serving 15,000 community members, who support themselves through organic sesame farming co-ops, sewing co-ops, and, now, organic honey farming co-ops.
We also support the Jubilee House by donating a portion of our sesame Tahini sales to them to use for their programs.
