Break Description

¡Unirse a nosotros! as we work with Casa-Nica in their mission of sustainable development by supporting and working directly with local Nicaraguans on a range of pre-existing projects including agriculture, education, and health. Their ability to stay “string-free” sets them apart from many other NGOs by allowing them to assist on current projects and objectives started by Nicaraguans rather than creating new ones.

Our service will mainly be with FUPROSOMUNIC (Fundación Proyecto Solar para Mujeres Nicaragüenses), an organization created and run by Nicaraguans, whose mission is to encourage and support families facing poverty to use sustainable agriculture and alternative sources of energy, particularly through solar power. We will be getting our hands dirty on the farm, helping to build solar ovens, and interacting with the Nicaraguan people!
