Nicaragua Mission 2017 - Part 1, Granada
Nicaragua Mission Trip 2017 is complete!
Our first full day in Nicaragua was spent in the colonial city of Granada. We visited the teachers and students of two educational programs supported by Building New Hope.
In addition to purchasing, roasting, and selling coffee locally from El Porvenir, our friends at BNH support two supplemental learning projects that serve approximately 150 students living in low-income neighborhoods in Granada and staffs local educators. The organization provides scholarships each year for students to attend high school. We visited the classrooms of Escuelita Yo Puedo and Quinta Los Chavalos and learned about how the educational system works in Nicaragua and the great need for supplemental learning programs for students. We concluded our day by visiting sites in Granada including the historic town square, Granada Cathedral, the San Fransico Convent, and the Isletas de Granda.
