Sos Nicaragua supports conservation projects throughout Nicaragua, from monitoring of threatened marine turtles to environmental education programs.
So what does Sos Nicaragua mean? Long story short: YOU ARE NICARAGUA.
Sos is a verbal form “100% pinolera” feature of the voseo so representative of the “nica” spoken and that means “YOU ARE” in other Spanish-speaking regions where it is more common the tuteo. The name Sos Nicaragua invites you to take action for a Nicaragua more socially fair and respectful with the environment. That is why we from Sos Nicaragua work day by day with the confidence to do a network of people and initiatives bigger and bigger that help us build the Nicaragua we want many. It is for this reason that we work to raise awareness and support those initiatives driven by people who share our values being the ones who inspire us to continue day by day with their “positive actions”.
But Sos plays with a dual meaning as also is an acronym that represents an easy and quick way to ask for help for different reasons. All of us are part of a natural environment that we have not been able to assess enough. It needs our active support now more than ever. By accepting our responsibility as a species and individual, we must stop to “pass the ball” to others or play defeatist messages and begin to make a difference ourselves. Let us make day-to-day that Nicaragua that we want to be.
