Volunteer Nicaragua with a local child care organization aimed to rescue children from abandonment.  Most of the kids at this center are victims of different types of abuse, children who have been involved in crime and children who have been abandoned by their families or been forced to work on the streets of Managua.

In this center the children are given a second chance at a better life. Children, who demonstrate willingness to improve, get the opportunity to reintegrate in society, go to school and live in homestays on campus. Each homestay have around 7 children and a “Mom” who cares for them 24/7. The center cares for about 100 children

  • Volunteers are needed to give different types of recreational activities. These activities can include but are not limited to: English lessons, art lessons, play sports and teach how to do handicrafts.  The children range in age between 10 and 17 years old.
