Highlights from Nicaragua

Students attending the Alternative Spring Break to Nicaragua worked on a variety of community service projects while also getting to know the local culture and enjoying the country's natural beauty. Working with community members through Waves of Hope, a local nonprofit, students helped construct a school kitchen which will give children a place to eat breakfast and lunch during the school year. Students also participated in English lessons and extra-curricular activities with the local children.

As one participant commented, "ASB Nicaragua was by far the most eye-opening experience I have ever had. After interacting with the local community members of Manzano Uno and for one week living life as they do, my perspectives on everyday life in America have been forever changed— from valuing water supply to the accessibility of adequate healthcare. ASB Nicaragua was the best week of my life."
