Nicaragua June 2013: Waswali, Nuestra Tierra, El Salto, San Jose, Yaule

This trip was undertaken in order to scout for one or two communities who would be interested in working with HeadStrong over at least a 3-5 year period of time.  We looked for communities that demonstrated leadership capacity, visible efforts toward self improvement, and willingness to collaborate and contribute toward the improved development of their families and public services.

Working hand in hand with Puentes de Esperanza, we were able to ensure cleaner water access to approximately 500 people as well as explore Raphael Alvarado's building projects.
