Project Nicaragua is returning back to work after successful trips were made by the Vanderbilt chapter and the Ohio State chapter. We are looking forward to more chapters making successful trips over spring break and this summer, so be sure to visit again to hear about updates on our projects and efforts. As always, we post information and pictures through our Facebook (link below). Lastly, we want to thank you for all of your support. This organization would not run without the amazing partnerships we have formed and help we have received over the past years. For that, we thank you.
In December 2014, the Vanderbilt chapter returned to Nicaragua. They spent the start of the trip in Managua, where they distributed eyeglasses to hundreds of patients at CENAO. They then traveled to Leon, where they taught lessons on dental hygiene, handwashing, nutrition, and exercise to young children in the Chacraseca community. They also helped with the construction of a house they raised funds for throughout the semester. Finally, they held an art therapy session for special needs children in Chichigalpa. The trip was a huge success! They all had a great time and can't wait to return.
