Caitlyn Peake is one of our two 2014-2015 Fellows Program grant recipients. Caitlyn is Green Empowerment’s Nicaragua Program Manager, and manages the implementation of clean energy and water projects that have a direct impact on the lives of hundreds of Nicaraguans. Additionally, she plays a critical role in building the capacity of two grassroots Nicaraguan NGOs, from project development and management to technical training on improved cook stoves. Finally, she is the key staff member that organizes and runs Green Empowerment’s internship and service learning programs. By the end of 2014, the use of new cook stoves, testing of new E coli water filters, and planning for the installation of latrines are well underway. In 2015, she will continue in developing and carrying out strategic plans with the two Nicaraguan partners in further strengthening the technical and programmatic capabilities of these organizations.
