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.
Be prepared to do real work and make a real impact! We empower our Volunteers and you will receive as much responsibility as you are willing to undertake. Whether it be teaching a class, leading recreation activities, tutoring individual students, or supervising and serving meals, you will be provided a positive and rewarding experience that will help change the lives of many children and perhaps your own as well!
Please note that we do NOT charge a fee to our Volunteers. We know that your time and your talent are valuable and the sacrifices it takes to be a Volunteer. As a low budget grass roots organization, we cannot offer renumeration and we do not provide accommodations or pay travel expenses.
