GW AWB Nicaragua

This January, we are participating in the George Washington University’s Alternative Winter Break trip to Nicaragua. We will travel with a group of students to Nicaragua, where our trip will focus on community empowerment in El Manzano Uno, a small, underserved coastal community in northern Nicaragua. Through our work with Waves of Hope, a local non-profit, we will help construct a restroom for the community’s elementary school, teach English to El Manzano Uno’s youth, and more to support the organization’s goal of creating a sustainable, educated, healthy and prosperous community. By serving alongside community members, we will fully immerse ourselves in the community as we work, plan, and build lasting relationships with the people of El Manzano Uno.
