Our Team


In addition to our Board of Directors the team of Proyecto Mosaico e.V. consists of three permanent staff members in Nicaragua and one permanent staff member in Germany. Our work is also supported by interns and volunteers in our office in Granada. We are experts who support our volunteers and our partner projects adequately and are also able to offer training. Since we all once were volunteers in the past, we share this experience with you and can understand your concerns very well.
