About La Esperanza Granada

Location:

calle Corrales,costado noreste conv. San Francisco, Granada, Nicaragua, NI

Mission Statement

Our mission: By providing opportunities and resources for the long term educational advancement and community development of the Granadino barrios, we hope to brighten the future of the children and empower each community so that they can break the cycle of poverty. At La Esperanza Granada, we believe in giving a hand up, not a handout.

Description

Located in Granada, Nicaragua, La Esperanza Granada is a non-profit organization with a primary focus on creating opportunities for children through education. 'Born’ in 2002, we started in one small village and now provide learning opportunities to more than 2,000 underprivileged children living in the barrios of Granada.

We are a nonprofit, nonpolitical, nondenominational organization, funded by donations of individuals, groups, service groups, schools etc. Donations are used for building new classrooms and schools, contributing to teacher’s salaries, and various things to help improve education and health for the children, such as making copies of exams and worksheets, buying textbooks, dental visits, sports supplies, school repairs and a never ending list of needs in this impoverished country.

Since April 2018, there has been some civil disturbances in the country and travel warnings have been issued by a number of countries, which has decreased the volunteers numbers. However, daily life continues and volunteers can expect to be warmly received by the children in the learning centres. During this time it is important to avoid all political gatherings and demonstrations, however there are still wonderful opportunities for those who want to explore the country. Recent travel to Ometepe Island, provided a tranquil weekend away and San Juan del Sur is still attracting surfers from around the world. Granada has many taxis and there are safe transport services to other locations in the country.
