Casa-Nica

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: December 18, 2014, 1:40 AM

Description

Casa-Nica is a small NGO recently founded in Nicaragua. We provide volunteering opportunities in existing, locally owned and run community organizations and Spanish classes. Our aim is to benefit both our volunteers and these community projects through working together in a shared language.

Casa-Nica is a fresh, new style of international NGO located in Masaya, Nicaragua (known as the "cultural basin" of this beautiful sub-tropical country) that works with a multitude of Nicaraguan organizations and nonprofits in a variety of exciting and contemporary fields such as sustainable agriculture, health care, education, empowerment technology, altruistic marketing, animal care, and cultural immersion and exchange. Casa-Nica is unique in that we believe that, unlike many foreign NGOs that tend to impose their own agendas and waste precious resources in the process, the best way to do development work is by contributing to and working with preexisting organizations started and run by Nicaraguans themselves. Our development and funding model has allowed us to stay strings-free and has helped us earn genuine credibility among the Nicaraguan communities. We believe that this type of model should be the way international development organizations are run and hope to be the first successful one of its kind. In addition we provide in Spanish classes from local qualified language teachers in order to provide the best possible experience for our volunteers. You will be able to more fully enjoy your time here as your language improves and you are able to communicate with the Nicaraguans.
