Travel to Nicaragua with Right to Learn,

I boast about traveling alone, not lonely, meaning I don’t need to travel with someone to enjoy a journey. However, I also like joining organized groups because I can meet new people and gain access to places I probably couldn’t access alone.

I’m excited to share this unique opportunity to join others on an intimate trip to Nicaragua which includes a visit to opens in a new windowSchool of Louise’s Dreams, a revolutionary Montessori school for impoverished children. In addition to experiencing Nicaragua’s scenery and culture, participants will see the power of education during the school visit.

Who is Louise?
School of Louise’s Dreams is a revolutionary Montessori school for impoverished children in Nagarote, Nicaragua. Louise Brunberg visited the country in 1993 and soon tapped her retirement to build a soup kitchen which evolved into a school. Today, more than 200 students from preschool to 4th grade attend the school daily free of charge (including transportation, uniform and supplies) plus two meals a day.

While I was learning about others, they were learning about Americans. In essence, my traveling companions and I were opens in a new windowunofficial U.S. ambassadors forging new friendships. One-on-one interactions as these make the world better because they help people better understand each other.

Trip Nuts & Bolts
I heard about this trip through the local newspaper ( opens in a new windowCharlotte Sun, Port Charlotte, Fla.) and really wish I could join in this trip but my work and personal schedule is pretty much booked up, which is why I’m hoping one of my readers will participate.
