La Esperanza Granada
Company (0-10 employees)
Located in Granada, Nicaragua, La Esperanza Granada is a non-profit organization with a primary focus on creating opportunities for children through education. 'Born’ in 2002, we started in one small village and now provide learning opportunities to more than 2,000 underprivileged children living in the barrios of Granada.
We are a nonprofit, nonpolitical, nondenominational organization, funded by donations of individuals, groups, service groups, schools etc. Donations are used for building new classrooms and schools, contributing to teacher’s salaries, and various things to help improve education and health for the children, such as making copies of exams and worksheets, buying textbooks, dental visits, sports supplies, school repairs and a never ending list of needs in this impoverished country.
The coronavirus crisis has damaged tourism in Nicaragua, reducing our funds and international volunteer numbers. Despite this, La Esperanza has persisted. The staff and the children here are extremely excited to welcome back our international volunteers!
Granada is a beautiful colonial city, on the shore of Lake Cocibolca and surrounded by volcanoes. The beach is never far away. There’s safe and accessible transport service within Granada and connecting it to surrounding areas. While Nicaragua has no official Covid restrictions, citizens generally follow Covid safety protocols.
