Break Description

Join us as we team up with the organization of Casa Nica to provide assistance to the Foundation of Nicaraguan Women Working on Solar Projects! We will be getting our hands dirty and our thumbs green, working on projects such as solar fruit drying, bee keeping, and helping with reforestation efforts. This organization focuses on a better quality of life for Nicaraguan women and their families while also protecting the natural environment through use of basic solar technologies and energy. The farm is completely run and maintained by a staff of all women, empowering them through provision of jobs and unique skills. Come soak up the sun with us as we immerse ourselves into the culture of Masaya and learn more about the lives of the women who help keep the community eco-friendly!
