Set in the beautiful city of Granada on the shores of Lake Nicaragua, this important childcare program supports Nicaragua’s impoverished children by giving them a great start to life!

 Volunteers on this placement will be working at a daycare center with many children, interacting with them and playing an important role in their early development. Volunteering with children in Nicaragua is a fun and rewarding experience that has a positive impact on both the children and the volunteer. As a developing nation with high rates of poverty, any support families receive is appreciated. Granada is a beautiful city, famed for its colonial architecture and its friendly people. Volunteers will spend time in this amazing location, soaking up the culture and sights, all while supporting children in need. For volunteers who love children, teaching and have loads of patience, this program will deliver a wonderful experience.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide essential support to marginalized young children
  • Teach impoverished children important skills such as hygiene practices 
  • Improve the future prospects of Nicaraguan children and help them to break the poverty cycle by supplying quality early childhood teaching
  • Expose volunteers, children and their families to different people and cultures

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs typically start every 1st and 3rd SUNDAY of each month. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the development of Nicaragua's next generation. While this highly rewarding project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with staff and students, though this is not a pre-requisite. All applicants must of course display a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
