History

The Centro Cultural NicaragŁense Norteamericano (CCNN) is a legally chartered non-profit Nicaraguan institution whose mission is to promote cultural exchange and understanding between Nicaraguan and North American people.  The CCNN was originally founded in 1942, however in 1972 it was destroyed by the earthquake which devastated the city of Managua.  In 1991 a group of North American and Nicaraguan citizens began planning the reopening of the Nicaraguan North-American Binational Center in order to strengthen cultural ties between the two countries.  In October 1993 the CCNN re-opened its doors to once again serve the Nicaraguan and North American public.

Definition

The purpose of the Binational Center is to be a self-supporting, non-profit, autonomous Cultural Association under Nicaraguan Law, governed by a voluntary board of Directors made up of Nicaraguan and US citizens. The Center will be financed by corporate and individual donations, membership fees, fees charged for language instructions and other programs and services, and special fund-raising activities.  Diversification of funding sources will assure the autonomous status and continuous smooth operations of the institution.
