Are you interested in Nicaragua? Do you like to travel? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of someone less fortunate? Join this group and learn how you can be part of an effort to improve the quality of life for thousands of hard-working subsistence level Nicaraguan farmers through the development of greenhouses and small-scale business in their communities.

We are scheduling a volunteer service trip to Nicaragua August 1-10, 2014. During the trip we will be installing several low-cost greenhouses which have been used successfully to improve family nutrition and raise household income. The project side of the trip will include a homestay in a rural Nicaraguan community (so be prepared to rough it) and a few day will be set aside to explore parts of the Nicaraguan countryside such as the Somoto Canyon, the colonial city of Granada and the Crater Lake at Apoyo. The trip cost is $2200 which will include all your in-country expenses (int'l airfare not included) and will be the sole source of funding for the project. The course cost is tax deductible.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
