On the slopes of Volcán Mombacho there are several farming cooperatives, made up by local farmers (campesinos). Here, on a small scale, farmers offer lodging, food, tours, and other services that enable visitors to experience the country life of these farmers. Volunteers will define the scope of their work based on what they can offer, but also on what the cooperatives need at the time. Volunteers are welcome to work at a cooperative with the goals of promoting fair trade in coffee and creating eco-tourism centers in order to benefit the local economy without massive environmental damage.
Volunteers will assist with chores in the cooperative as well as help develop income generating activities to sustain the cooperative.Participants should have an intermediate level of Spanish language knowledge for this program
