Conservación & Medio Ambiente in Camboya

While being the second largest Central American country, Nicaragua’s beauty is second to none! This dreamland has inspired poets and artists for centuries and captured the imagination of those who have had the fortune to have set foot on them.

Nicas (Nicaraguans) are joyful and artistic oriented people who feel very proud of their many cultural achievements and cultural traditions. After the end of their civil war in 1990 Nicaraguans have managed to build a stable and independent democracy that has allowed for foreign investments to flow in and boost the local economy, particularly in Tourism and Real Estate industries.

Like its neighbouring Central American countries, Nicaragua is blessed with most agreeable weather conditions, bewildering sights and natural landscapes which include rainforest, paradisiac tropical beaches, mountains that hide ancient aboriginal ruins, amazing volcanoes and valleys  irrigated by rivers that nourish an ever-blooming  flora of breathtaking beauty and a fauna of great diversity.

CW’s programs are placed in Granada and its surroundings. This is the first European city built in America and is being massively restored and revitalized. Located on the shore of the Nicaragua Lake, this beautiful colonial city is the perfect destination for volunteers who wish to improve their Spanish language skills and get to know Nicaraguan culture and customs at a deeper level

These are the programs that we offer in Nicaragua:

-Youth program.

-Daycare program.

-Women’s program.

-Physical therapy program.

-Conservation program.

What’s included in our fair-cost policy?

 

All our programs include a fixed price Registration Fee of US$249 and a Program Fee that varies according to the duration of the program and the services included.

 

The Registration Fee covers the costs of all that Connecting Worlds has to do in order to organise the experience in an efficient manner and offer each participant a quality program. These costs include marketing, staff salaries, travel costs of staff who visit and inspect each of the programs on offer and Connecting Worlds’ solidarity fund among others. We need this fee just to sustain the organization.

 

The Program Fee is the total cost of everything related to the services that the volunteer will be able to take advantage of upon arrival to the destination of their choice. For example, accommodation, meals, transfers, the donation made to the volunteer project, welcome orientation and constant 24/7 support. The payment for this fee goes directly to the country in which the volunteer will be stationed, directly benefiting the local community. It’s a fee which helps organisations that work in the country associated with the program at hand to move forwards with their projects and generate work opportunities for the local community.

 

Thanks to our fair-cost policy, the volunteer benefits from not having to pay high fees and our local partners benefit from being able to invest in their projects and keep things moving forwards. Connecting Worlds also benefits from keeping the costs of its programs as low as possible because we get the opportunity to support local communities and make a difference in our own small but important way.

 

Conservation program

This program is aimed to help develop and reinforce the local farmer cooperatives located on the slopes of Volcán Mombacho.

In a small scale ecotourism industry, local farmers (campesinos) offer accommodation,meals, tours and other such services that enable tourist to have a taste of the local rural lifestyle. Guided tours to corn, beans, coffee and watermelon plantations are offered by these farmer cooperatives, that also sell visitors handicrafts made by the local women of the area.

 

Volunteers to this program can help the farmer cooperatives with the creation of infrastructure for their ecotourism activities and also with strategic ideas to strengthen the agricultural production without while preserving the natural environment.

Volunteers who have a background or previous experience in agricultural commerce and trade are encouraged to join a cooperative where they can help promote fair trade in coffee or help develop income generating activities to sustain the farmer cooperatives.

Volunteers will define the scope of their work in a cooperative accordingly to their preferences and areas of interest, but they must also be willing to assist farmers with the tasks that are needed at the time.

To participate in this program volunteers need to have an intermediate level of Spanish language skills.
