For the last 24 years, Seeds of Learning has been organizing and sending groups of North American volunteers to work alongside of community members in Nicaragua to construct a classroom, learning center, garden, kitchen, or other educational project.
In addition to mixing concrete, laying bricks, and working hard, volunteers also get the chance to learn about the lives of the people with whom they work. Afternoons are spent visiting houses in a community, talking to local about their lives, playing games, visiting cooperatives, or markets, hiking, swimming, or other activities.
Usually a weekend trip brings you to another part of the country. Seeds of Learning only works in communities where we have been invited by the community members to work together with them to improve their access to education.
We have placements in Tipitapa, Matagalpa, and Ciudad Dario.
