N_H.07 Volunteer in a child care center (Nicaragua)

Location: Close to León, Nicaragua

Collage N_H.07

Description of the project:

This project wants to give a perspective to children who already have to work, who have a problematical family background and children who do not get a good education. The organization helps children dealing with the difficult situation they have to live in. It is located in a little beach town where there is not much to do. Instead of sitting around bored or in front of the television, children can come here. This project is not only a place where they get lessons and help doing their homework. It is also a place where they can just be children and play, make friends and learn from each other. Leaders and volunteers of the project support their creativity in different ways giving dance classes, arts, sports or doing other funny activities in this little beach town. Because so far, there aren`t many possibilities for kids to enjoy their free-time. The children also have the possibility to talk to psychologists who come from the university in León.
