ASNIC (Nicaraguan Association for Community Living) is a non-governmental organisation legally registered in Nicaragua. ASNIC’s membership is made up mainly by PWDs and their families. However, it is open also to professionals and technicians with an interest in disability, like doctors, lawyers, university professors, artists, etc. that share ASNIC’s vision and objectives.

ASNIC has managed and implemented important projects for the inclusion of PWDs and their families, in topics like Inclusive Education, and creating strategies for increase a protagonism in theirs communities.
