La Mariposa and Nicaragua Network
YOUTH DELEGATION TO NICARAGUA
January 2nd to 14th 2013
WHAT KIND OF DEVELOPMENT IS POSSIBLE?
Social projects, economic development, protection of the environment – are all three possible simultaneously?
Experience, learn and consider the issues through an exciting and powerful combination of
- Hands on service work in a local school, on an organic farm, on an eco build construction project or helping with English
- Visiting a range of social projects, eg the Managua rubbish dump clean up, local housing projects, youth environmental groups
- A couple of days on the stunning volcanic island of Ometepe to learn whilst swimming, climbing a volcano or just relaxing!
- Talking directly with young Nicaraguans to share their views on the future of the economy and the environment
- Taking time each day to watch a film, reflect and join in led discussions
- Staying in an environment where every care has been taken to protect and enhance the local environment – from using solar heated water, eating meals of organic veggies grown on our community garden scheme in a dining hall built of straw to caring for rescued dogs and horses
Price $1050 (excludes air fare) Min age is 16 years
