As part of my Alternative Practicum placement for Queens, I will be travelling with a group of 23 students to Nicaragua.  During this placement we will be volunteering in the school and community.

Our hope is that we can raise enough money to build three houses.  Many people in Nicaragua live in shacks with dirt floors, falling apart walls and holes in the roof.  As a group we will be  putting in a raised floor, putting up new walls and a new roof.  This will give a family a safe, dry spot to sleep at night. 

The money being raised is going towards the cost of the materials and hiring a small local contracting company.  Most of the manual labour will be done by Queens education students.

For more information on the house building please watch this video
