A clean, dry, secure home is vital in ensuring children can take full advantage of all education opportunities available to them. Some of the children we work with live slums not able to sustain the wet season. If you would like to be involved in a truly hands-on project, building a house that will provide shelter to underprivileged children in the barrios of Granada, we would be delighted to help make it happen.


This opportunity is only available during dry season (December to April) and takes approximately 2 weeks. Volunteers will be responsible for fundraising the cost of a house, which is US$3000 in total, and will each receive a free La Esperanza Granada T-shirt.


This is a great idea for schools and group volunteering.


There are no language requirements for volunteers in this role, just a willingness to get involved and make a difference! 


Costs Involved


There are no additional fees involved with volunteering at La Esperanza Granada, although any fundraising initiatives are welcomed! In return you will receive two La Esperanza Granada t-shirts free to wear when you are working with us.


Volunteers are responsible for their own living expenses for the duration of their stay. La Esperanza Granada is happy to recommend hostels and arrange homestays for volunteers.


Other Opportunities


Granada is a beautiful colonial city, on the shore of Lake Cocibolca and surrounded by volcanoes. It is in close proximity to a variety of places of interest and with a buzzing evening atmosphere, volunteers are free to spend their weekends experiencing the beauty of Nicaragua.


La Esperanza Granada can also assist by arranging affordable Spanish classes and bike rentals
