La Esperanza Granada
managed by Roberto
Located in Granada, Nicaragua, La Esperanza Granada is a non-profit organization with a primary focus on creating opportunities for children through education. ‘Born’ in 2002, we started in one small village and now provide learning opportunities to more than 2,000 underprivileged children living in the neighbourhoods of Granada. In the morning, English classes are run in our learning centers for older children who go on to attend school in the afternoons. In the afternoon, our learning centers are transformed into a hub of educational activities for younger children, with volunteers assisting the children in areas such as Maths, Art, Spanish, Computing and Reading.
Volunteers join us from around the world and work alongside local volunteers, called ‘ayudantes’, who are all local students receiving a university scholarship through La Esperanza Granada.
Our mission: By providing opportunities and resources for the long term educational advancement and community development of the Granadino barrios, we hope to brighten the future of the children and empower each community so that they can break the cycle of poverty. At La Esperanza Granada, we believe in giving a hand up, not a handout.
