Proyecto CocoMango is a grassroots community organization that works to expand educational and artistic opportunities, protect the environment, and develop social and economic resources for Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua, and neighboring communities. CocoMango was established in July 2014 by a mixture of individuals who have been carrying out projects in the Laguna since 2011, community members, and expatriate residents. The organization is run by a community-elected Board of local leaders and expatriates, and has self-assigned community members working in 4 branches: Education; Environment; Art; and Economic & Social Development.
