Work with children in neighborhood libraries

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


GranadaGranada, NI


There are many reasons why Nicaraguan children don’t read books: They are expensive, a high illiteracy rate prevents many parents from reading to their children, many children do not attend school or books are not affordable in schools. The objective of this project is to provide the children with opportunities to discover the world of books and to practice reading. The volunteers can also develop other creative activities with the children like drawing or writing.


The work is quite flexible and depends on your imagination:

  • Read books to and with the children and make handicrafts with them (the library provides a lot of arts and crafts material. You could also bring things from your home country to advocate the cultural exchange)

  • Play and spend time with the children

  • Work schedule: depending on the projects that the volunteer will participate in, but will likely occupy some hours in the mornings or in the afternoons during the week

  • Vacations: Easter week, one week around Christmas

Accommodation, Benefits and Costs:

  • You can stay in a host family in Granada (from 50 US$ / week incl. breakfast) or in a shared flat (from 35 US$/ week)

  • Proyecto Mosaico books your lodging, Spanish school and your transportation from the airport, furthermore we offer individual assistance provided by the office in Granada before, throughout and after your stay

  • For our work and our services we ask a one-time-only fee of 250 € - regardless of the length of your stay
