A clean, dry, secure home is vital in ensuring children can take full advantage of all education opportunities available to them. 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.


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

Accommodation Opportunities


La Esperanza Granada has inexpensive accommodation, with cooking facilities, available for volunteers. Alternatively, there is a wide range of accommodation opportunities available in Granada and the organization can assist by arranging local homestays, if required.

Other Opportunities


Granada is a beautiful colonial city, on the shore of Lake Cocibolca and surrounded by volcanoes. 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 arranging local homestays.
