In March I and a group of 23 of my peers from Queen's will be heading to Nicaragua for our alternative practicum in teachers college. In Nicaragua we will be teaching children English, and building homes for Nicaraguan families. 

Many families in Nicaragua are living in shacks with dirt floors that are constantly flooded in the rainy season, walls that are falling down, and roofs with holes in them. As a group, we are aiming to build three house while we are there! We will be laying a new floor that is raised off the ground, putting up walls, and adding on a roof that is hole free! This will provide the families of Nicaragua with a safe, and dry place to sleep at night! 

The proceeds that are raised will be going towards building supplies for the homes, and also to employ a few local contractors to help with the home instillation, however the majority of the manual labour will be done by myself and my peers from Queens! 

Feel free to check out the video at the link below for info about the building project or send me any questions you may have! I have also provided a link to the Companeros Inc. website (the company I am travelling with) in case you have any questions about their business. Companeros is a privately run social enterprise, not a charity, so tax receipts will not be issued (sorry!) 

Please help us, help the families of Nicaragua!!!!
