PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America and the second poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. It is known for its natural beauty, extraordinarily friendly people, and being the second safest country in the Hemisphere.
Panorama Service Expeditions (PSE) is a non-profit organization focused on grass-roots sustainable social and economic development projects in Nicaragua. PSE leads the Nicaragua Compact, a Panorama Services Expeditions-directed consortium of USA universities. This Compact focuses USA higher education efforts in Nicaragua towards long-term, sustainable and social justice-focused projects, all uniquely designed to intensify economic and social development in Nicaraguan communities.
Your expedition will continue to support the Instituto school and its children in the community of Monte Tabor. You will continue to build upon ‘Bama’s previous service and the work of other expeditions. You will staff a special Panorama Education Camp and assist in the development of the school’s computer lab and library, as well as securing the computer lab. Each service day is composed of teaching activities (ESL, Math, Art, Music) and with outside games, etc. during breaks. During your service project you will be guided by Panorama staff, by teachers, and by community members that take interest in the school’s well-being.
