Childcare Volunteering Program in Nicaragua

This program provides volunteers with the unique opportunity to volunteer short-term with rural communities near Estelí, Nicaragua, in the midst of the beautiful Segovia Mountains. Surrounded by mountains, valleys and waterfalls, volunteers will live in this old Sandinista stronghold, learning or improve their Spanish, and traveling to nearby rural areas for their project work. GVI, along with leaders of the communities, have built and started a school in La Thompson and are funding and developing education programs and ‘aulas abiertas’ (open classes) to assist children who otherwise may not have the opportunity for any formal education or who need reinforcement. Spanish lessons and several trips and activities are also included in the program, including a weekend trip to the Miraflor Natural Reserve and a day’s hike to the Salto de la Estanzuela Waterfall. You can also go horse-riding, attend lectures on local history and visit local museums and points of interest in Estelí.
