Volunteer with Education Plus Nicaragua

Education Plus Nicaragua

Granada (Barrio el Pantanal), Nicaragua, Central America

Education Plus Nicaragua is a grassroots after-school program that provides food, education, recreation, material assistance, and love to the children of Barrio el Pantanal, who are among the poorest in the world.

Working with the local community, we serve over 250 children ages 2 to 18 nutritionally, educationally, materially, and spiritually. We instill core values, teach life skills, and produce concrete results: higher school enrollment, improved grades, and elimination of malnutrition.
