Nuestro principal objetivo en este programa es ayudar a las mujeres y madres jóvenes nicaragüenses a empoderarse brindándoles herramientas y educación importantes, siempre de manera más personalizada para que las ayuden a desarrollar sus habilidades y reforzar sus conocimientos.
Muchas de las mujeres que vienen a este programa provienen de lugares muy vulnerables en Nicaragua, con poca o ninguna educación. Por eso, la educación que los voluntarios ayudan a brindar a estas mujeres es sumamente valiosa e impactante en la vida de estas mujeres. Muchas de estas mujeres también han tenido que afrontar grandes dificultades, como afrontar la misoginia y la violencia doméstica, razón por la cual incluso detalles simples como pasar tiempo con ellas, compartir momentos especiales, conversar y dar su cariño también pueden realmente mejorar sus vidas, su autoestima. y bienestar general.

Como voluntario, puede realizar tareas como realizar talleres de capacitación, dar clases (en temas como inglés, español, matemáticas, entre otros), realizar actividades de lectura, organizar talleres sobre oportunidades laborales y desarrollo empresarial (por ejemplo, el uso de nuevos tecnologías, herramientas de búsqueda de empleo, currículums de redacción ...), sensibilizar sobre temas como igualdad de género, derechos de la mujer, planificación familiar y educación sexual, participar y crear programas de intercambio cultural, enseñar a las mujeres a utilizar la tecnología (como computadoras, escritura correos electrónicos, oficina ..), entre muchas otras cosas.

Todas estas tareas ayudan a las mujeres a abrir sus mentes y adquirir un amplio conjunto de habilidades que las ayudarán a obtener más oportunidades y alcanzar sus sueños. El propósito de estas actividades es también crear ambientes donde las mujeres se sientan cómodas y seguras, para que puedan sentirse empoderadas para enfrentar las dificultades que tienen. 

Typical day

Volunteers work on weekdays (Monday through Friday) on two shifts: the morning shift, that lasts from 10:00 to 12:00, and the afternoon shift, that lasts from 13:00 to 17:00.
On weekends, volunteers are free to go discover everything that Nicaragua has to offer.

Free-time activities

Nicaragua is a diverse and interesting country with a rich culture and a lot of beautiful sights you cannot miss!
Some of the places that we recommend you to visit during your volunteering experience are:
  • Granada: The city where you will be volunteering at, it's a small but exotic place filled with beautiful landscapes, colonial buildings, and warm people. It's located near the most beautiful beaches of the Pacific, as well as the Mombacho volcano, the Cocibolca lake, and other remarkable places to visit. 
  • Mombacho volcano: An extinct volcano south of Granada, it's a national park where you can hike through a tropical forest filled with a wide array of local flora and fauna to reach the volcano's crater. The park also has a museum, where you can understand more about the area, its history, and the species that inhabit it.
  • Zapatera island: one of the largest and most scenic islands within the Archipiélago de Zapatera national park, it's a very scenic place where you can see the Zapatera lagoon, a small lagoon formed in the crater of an ancient extinct volcano. At this park, you can enjoy nature with trekking, fishing,  and excursions through archaeological and wooden areas.
  • Ometepe: an island created by volcanic activity in one of Central America's largest lakes, it's a unique place known for having two volcanoes in its center. This place is perfect for any lover of outdoor adventures, nature, climbing, or trekking.
  • León: a city filled with culture and history, where you can experience local traditions and understand Nicaragua better. It's also a great place for sandboarding, a sport done in the black ashes of the nearby Cerro Negro volcano.
