This abstract was published in Connexions Digest in 1991:
The tecNICA Foundation, which has been providing a variety of technical assistance to Nicaragua, is continuing with its work despite the election of the UNO opposition in Nicaragua. Tecnica says that "we are continuing to focus on Nicaragua because it is still in the forefront of social struggle. Productive factories and land may be turned over to private owners, children may starve and be denied medicine but it won't be accepted as natural. The revolution is now part of Nicaragua's soul. The people will not be submissive. They will fight back." Accordingly Tecnica is working directly with popular organizations in Nicaragua such as the National Union of Farmers and Ranchers. Tecnica is also considering involvement in South Africa and with Canada's Native people, noting that "our charitable registration in no way restricts us to serving any particular country of community, only to helping communities that want to help themselves."
