Granada, Nicaragua - 2017
In January of 2017 we traveled to Granada, Nicaragua to build a classroom in one of the local neighbourhoods. Nicaragua is a developing country and the key to their prosperity is providing education at the elementary level. We partnered with Esperanza Granada to select the work site and have a team of local workers to assist with the actual construction. At the completion of the week, we had a fully functional classroom ready for 30 students of the community as well as a commitment that the supplies, teachers and other requirements would be provided to those students for a full 6 years -- to completion of their elementary grades. This was another life-changing and rewarding experience for our team.
