We have some wonderful new articles written by our very own volunteer, Lynda Smith. Lynda is a journalist from the UK and has been working with La Esperanza as a volunteer in one of our schools, Nueva Esperanza.
She has written 3 fantastic articles that highlight a few of the projects that La Esperanza supports. The first, Sponsorship and Scholarships: Maria Antonia's Story, features one of our very own ayudantes and does a great job of examining the difficulty of obtaining an education for many Nicaraguan children. She also writes about our Families for Families project in The house that Kathryn and Rick built, where two very generous volunteers came to Granada to complete a 12-day home improvement project for one of our local families. Finally, La Esperanza had the pleasure of taking our students on a school excursion at the end of their 2011 school year. Thanks to a major donation from the Body Shop Foundation, we took over 500 children to the zoo and had a picnic outing for the day. You can read all about it in Lynda's article, A Grand Day out.
All of these articles are available by clicking the links, or you can go to our website, www.la-esperanza-granada.org, to see a full collection of La Esperanza Press Articles. Thanks again Lynda, great work!
