Volunteer Programs in Nicaragua
Situated on the Central American isthmus, between Honduras and Costa Rica, Nicaragua's natural wonders are quite simply incredible. With calm, clear Caribbean waters on one side and surfer-paradise Pacific coasts on the other, joined by an impressive volcanic interior, Nicaragua offers visitors a paradise of outdoor activities. Not withstanding the cultural richness and colonial architecture that has fascinated visitors for centuries, particularly prevalent in the old town of Granada, where Love Volunteers programs are based.
As is the case with many idyllic locations, Nicaragua has been the scene of political and economic unrest resulting in inequality and poor standards of living for much of the population. Volunteers have the privilege of helping across a variety of areas from childcare and teaching to the empowerment of women and gender equality and assisting with rural medical outreaches.
