Committed group of individuals working to provide basic educational infrastructure in Nicaragua
Volunteer Coordinator and Communications Manager (Former Employee) – Managua – 8 August 2013
This is a small but dedicated organization. It can be challenge navigating two different set of cultural expectations. Fortunately, the staff is open and willing to discuss issues, so resolution is possible. I learned much in those discussions, both in terms of cultural expectations and of my own. I enjoyed working with local Nicaraguans, learning their culture and sharing the country I love with visiting North Americans. What remained a challenge was the seeming lack of confidence in any work done. Everything required review by multiple people, which made production inefficient.
