We exchange information about the environment and protection of forests including Honduras and El Salvador. In Costa Rica there is contact with the 'CATIE', a renowned research and training institute for the tropics in agriculture and forestry.

In 2009, two official partnerships were signed. The first was with the Christian women's organization 'Dios es Amor'. The aim was to work together to improve the position of women in rural areas. The environment plays an important role. The second was the national youth environmental club Club de Jovenes Ambientalistas'. This is about environmental education in primary and secondary schools in regions León and Chinandega.
