Seven days from today we leave on our second adventure to Nicaragua. Working with the non profit Seeds of Learning, my children and I will join thirteen other teens, teachers and adults to travel to Ciudad Dario to help build a high school.
Our trip in 2010 was simply life altering, and I expect that this year’s adventure will be nothing less. The work is physical and emotional, but so gratifying. The friends we made, the people we met, and the work we did have helped move my life in a different direction since we returned.
Today our story is featured in our local newspaper, The Davis Enterprise, thanks to the kind writer Anne Termus-Bellamy. Please click this link to read more about us in the fine article, “Davis Teacher Returns to Nicaragua to Plant More Seeds of Learning’. If you’re inspired to support our project, please contact me or contribute to our Indiegogo campagaign (see link on sidebar).
And of course, I’ll be blogging as we travel and internet connection allows…you won’t want to miss the fascinating people and beautiful country of Nicaragua.
