Helping the next generation of Nicaraguans

Posted by on

This July 12-21 I will be escorting a group of adventurers on our Escorted Nicaragua Adventure Tour, we will show our love and support to the children of Nicaragua. We will be donating school supplies at a school for low income families. We'll also meet the staff from Carita Feliz, a non-profit organization we have supported since the start our Nicaragua program. There are so many ways to help: cooking dinner for at the communal dining room, teaching English words to the children, sharing an arts & crafts class, etc. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western hemisphere and every grain of sand is appreciated by our brothers and sisters on this tropical land. We still have space available for this incredible adventure and it's not too late to book this once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Many families have contributed during their travels by bringing donations for the local children, this creates a lot of smiling faces. (Read about the Tallerman Family Trip). Some of these cultural interactions have been the highlight for many travelers. As a traveler once said: “Handing them a ball is like handing them the moon”.

 Here are some comments from a recent alumni:

“Thank you for making the donation to the school children. It was absolutely one of my favorite days in Nicaragua. The people of the Islands of Lake Nicaragua - Islets of Granada was so fascinating. Our tour guide, a 9th generation native, was an outstanding young man. Through our guide, David, he explained his life on the islands. We arrived at the school about an hour before dismissal. We organized all the school supplies and distributed them to each age group. It was so amazing as we shook their hands and handed them supplies. They were all very thankful and sweet. We were greeted by the head of the school who was so grateful to have us there. We all left with tears in our eyes-- including David, our tour guide. We watched the kids leave school and board their colorful row boats and begin rowing back home- the older ones rowing the younger ones. It was really amazing.” - Judy Tallerman and Family

I see Nicaraguans as true warriors and believe tourism is already playing an important role on the economy of the country. When tourism is done right it can be one of the most influential and beneficial experiences one can have.

So, what are you waiting? Get your suitcase ready and join us on this fun and adventurous trip to the tropical lands of Nicaragua:  July 12-21 Escorted Nicaragua Adventure Tour

Keeping it wild,
