It is engaged in research and education on issues pertaining to the poor and to social transformation in Nicaragua and in all of Central America.


Central American Historical Institute is involved in journalistic research, reflection, analysis, communication, education, and social action. IHCA strives to assist all those who are interested in creating a more just and inclusive society in Nicaragua and in the rest of Central America.[1]

Its work includes exposing the anti-Sandinista stance of La Prensa, the traditional newspaper in Nicaragua.[2] It also reflected on the situation of the indigenous peoples.[3] It dealt extensively with the Nicaraguan coastal conflict.[4]Template:Dead link Since the electoral defeat of the FSLN in 1990, envio has turned its attention more to Central American and regional issues, offering information, analysis, and research.[5]

Guardian Angel sisters,[7] Jesuit scholastics, and dozens of dispersed people help to coordinate the training efforts.
