Who should participate?
Any adult looking for a life enhancing experience helpings others to break the cycle of poverty while enjoying the beautiful mountain surroundings of northern Nicaragua. Spanish language skills are not required.
What will volunteers do?
Participants will work alongside a well-established organization committed to improving the lives of others. The work will be done in remote communities that are served by Fabretto’s network of schools and education centers. Typical projects include: school gardens that feed the students; the construction of school facilities like kitchens, playgrounds, and hand-washing stations; working with small business initiatives that teach community members skills and entrepreneurism. The trip’s flexible structure also allows volunteers with specific skills, talents, and backgrounds to share their interests (i.e., healthcare, education, sports, arts & crafts, etc.) with the kids and residents in the communities where we work.
Most of the time will be spent in the northern city of Cusmapa with stops at other Fabretto centers. The trip also includes sightseeing excursions to the Spanish colonial city of Granada and to areas like the Mombacho Cloud Forest and Lake Nicaragua.
