February 2020 – First Volunteer Group of 2020!

Our first volunteer group of the year arrived in Nicaragua on Thursday, February 13th, 2020. During their 10-day trip, the wonderful volunteers helped build a classroom at the Cristo Rey School, in Las Chacaras community in Leon.

There was so much love from the community members who welcomed our volunteers into their lives. They built the school and spent memorable times together. Saying goodbye was difficult for the students, but warm hugs helped them feel better.

We are so thankful to this wonderful volunteer group for empowering the children of Nicaragua to get a basic education. Special thanks to Jannelle Wilkins and her friends for building this classroom in memory of Rick Mera.
