Jessica Seda, Operations Specialist at Eagle Creek, traveled to Nicaragua to assist the Help Them Help Themselves (HTHT) organization in re-establishing eco-friendly gardens for two underprivileged elementary schools, leading to be an incredibly eye-opening and life changing experience.
My recent trip to Nicaragua was such an adventure! Nicaragua is a country that is extremely geographically diverse, making it a must-see destination complete with awaiting adventures to lakes, volcanoes, and beaches. My kids and I were fortunate enough to experience some amazing sites, such as Masaya Volcano, Apoyo Crater Lake, and the Isleta’s in Lake Nicaragua, among many other exciting places!
However, the main highlight of our trip was the time that we spent volunteering at two village elementary schools in one of the poorest communities in Nicaragua, through the organization Help Them Help Themselves (HTHT). The organization is solely dedicated to helping provide an environment where children in these villages can feel safe, as well as receive proper health care and education to help them receive a better future.
