Ryan and Allie left this morning for 10 days in Nicaragua. Here they are at the airport!
They will be working with a youth group in conjunction with School Box http://www.schoolbox.ca/ to build a school for 32, 5 to 8 year olds. They have been planning and preparing for this trip for over a year.
I am excited and a little nervous for them. Nicaragua is the second poorest nation in the hemisphere, after Haiti. Per capita GNI in US dollars is $1000. The Central Bank of Nicaragua estimates that 60% of the population lives on less than $2 a day.
You can follow their progress through their trip blog www.travelblog.org/Bloggers/Viaje-Nicaragua/
