GIVE - Nicaragua
Volunteer abroad with GIVE in Nicaragua and embark on an adventure that will change your life, while empowering and assisting others. Volunteer your efforts in a small fishing community on the Pacific Coast, working on infrastructure projects and English education. Sandboard down an active volcano and complete your volunteer adventure on a breathtaking island in the Caribbean - And now, for the first time, you can receive academic credit through GIVE's accredited course designed specifically to enhance your excursion. Combine your excursion with our groundbreaking course and be the Roots of Change!
Education is the foundation of human development. As a GIVE volunteer, you will cultivate this concept by working one on one with local children to increase their opportunity and capacity to effectively learn and propagate valuable life skills. The incredible desire and willingness these children have to learn and interact with our volunteers is truly inspiring. Learn more about our educational program in Nicaragua.
As a GIVE volunteer, you will work with rural communities to implement valuable infrastructure that supports health, education, and the further development of human and social capital. Community support and involvement in all development endeavors is key. GIVE sees this critical component in development as an opportunity to share culture and accomplishments by working side-by-side with local people. While infrastructure projects are varied due to our excellent rate of completion, you can rest assured you will be involved in unique and innovative projects that continually push the limits of incorporating unprecedented, cutting edge eco-friendly building techniques. Take our vocational school for example: it's built out of over 15,000 plastic bottles and entirely powered by solar energy, publicly offered and privately financed by GIVE and it's partners. Learn more about our eco-friendly, innovative infrastructure projects in Nicaragua.
Community Recycling Program
GIVE is focused on incorporating and engaging the community in all of our projects. All of the plastic bottles, candy wrappers, and other discards are collected through a community-recycling program. This program is managed and run by local community members and illustrates their commitment, support, and belief in the importance of our projects.
The government provides no infrastructure for trash removal and therefore most discards are either burned or thrown into the sea. This recycling program is critical for community clean up and environmental awareness and is a catalyst for community involvement and empowerment. Learn more about our eco-friendly building techniques with recycled materials.
Endangered Hawks Bill Turtle Conservation
As a volunteer, you will support a local NGO in protecting the critically endangered Hawksbill Sea Turtle by venturing out to secluded beaches in search for Sea Turtles laying eggs. Eggs are collected and kept away from predators to ensure their safety until the baby hatchlings are mature enough for release back into the wild. The most active months are between June-August.
The Hawksbill Sea Turtle has been pushed to near extinction due to poaching and destruction of habitat. The Padre Ramos Estuary, where this volunteer project is located, has been identified as one of the most important nesting sites on the Pacific Coast of Central America.
Volunteers will venture to a secluded island with a local research team to monitor Hawksbill turtles as they crawl up the beach to lay their eggs. To increase their chance of survival, volunteers will collect the eggs and bring them to a nursery for protection. Volunteers who join the trip in August will release the baby turtles back into the wild.
