There are constantly repairs needed in the learning centers and volunteer houses. La Esperanza Granada has tools on site and would greatly appreciate the support of a volunteer willing to take on general handyman work. This role is ideal for an individual who wishes to support our organization but does not necessarily want to work directly with the children.
This position is available throughout the year and requires a minimum time commitment of 4 weeks. Volunteers in this role should have at least intermediate level English. No Spanish is required.
We ask each volunteer to make an initial contribution of US$50 towards administration costs, so that all donations continue to go directly towards supporting the learning centers and other projects. In return, you will receive two La Esperanza Granada t-shirts free to wear when you are working with us. There are no additional fees involved with volunteering at La Esperanza Granada, although any fundraising initiatives are welcomed!
Volunteers are responsible for their own living expenses for the duration of their stay. However, La Esperanza Granada has inexpensive accommodation, with cooking facilities, available for volunteers.
Granada is a beautiful colonial city, on the shore of Lake Cocibolca and surrounded by volcanoes. In close proximity to a variety of places of interest and with a buzzing evening atmosphere, volunteers are free to spend their weekends experiencing the beauty of Nicaragua.
La Esperanza Granada can also assist by arranging affordable Spanish classes and arranging local homestays.
