Nicaragua Carbon Offset Fund
Climate change is a new challenge that needs a response. We have the ability to make a difference.
The Nicaragua Carbon Offset Fund (NCOF) collects offsets for air and car travel. While cutting present greenhouse gas emissions is the best step, offsetting can be a good short term option for reducing emissions created elsewhere.
Offset funds donated here (or by check) will be distributed periodically by NHLSCP to either:
• NH/LSCP Leόn efforts supporting the installation of more efficient cook stoves in rural Nicaragua in Goyena. The cleaner efficient wood stoves (and possibly solar cookers), reduce greenhouse gases, decrease pollution responsible for respiratory disease, and reduce funds/time people need to spend buying/collecting fuel.
• Channel funds through other certified carbon offset projects like the COTAP reforestation project in Limay, Nicaragua.
1.Track your air/car usage.
2. Periodically calculate offset online using carbon calculator here.
3. Offset by donating calculated amount here (put NCOF in 'Designation' line), or write check to NH/LSCP with NCOF on memo line. NCOF donations are tax deductible.

Our work in rural Nicaragua - primary education, youth leadership, sustainable development - is a partnership between Nicaraguans and USians committed to addressing concrete problems and planting seeds for a better future.
Your gift will go to work right away, and will have an important impact on developing lasting solutions to poverty and injustice.
Select Recurring Donation option for a greater ongoing impact.
To donate by check, make check payable to 'NHLSCP' and send to 608 Whitney Avenue, New Haven, CT 06511.
