During times of uncertainty, W/NP is promoting safe, small and solo volunteer projects - a great example is Maria, from Esteli, coordinator of the Colibri/Hummingbird Initiative, "..the start of April brought us hope and faith ...we have canceled the activities (many families prefer not to send children as a precaution) because of the pandemic we are going through ... However, some improvements continue in our premises (they are installing metal protectors on each door), thanks local volunteer coordinator John Jackson, the Rotary Clubs in Stevens Point and Partner City members. I tried to do a "before" and "after" to appreciate the change. Creative paintings to touch up the tires and benches in the patio, doing that is relaxing, I started alone, after a while 3 hummingbirds joined me wanting to support me, at first I hesitated to accept the help because I thought they better be at home, then I thought "there are only 3" and we can be at certain distances and with masks 🤭🤭🤭 And so it was ... We had a great time and we were happy with the beautiful results ... The other children will be happy when they return and see so much beauty 🌺🌺🌺 of the work in the Hummingbird Initiative. It is a good idea to work these days when the activities are canceled, that way the work progresses more and it will be beautiful when all the children return, they will be happy to see so many beautiful changes."

Like anything man made, repairs and upkeep are inevitable when exposed to the forces of nature. Enjoy this photo album that includes recent repairs, examples of natures challenges as well as photos from the original construction of the bridge in 2016. The bridge was a huge improvement for the community as it helps connect Las Lagunas to the rest of civilization. Remote areas have just as many amazing volunteers who are eager to work together improving their community and quality of life. Special thanks to all the volunteers in Appleton, WI that have been working together on a wide variety of projects with the people of Las Lagunas for many years. ... See MoreSee Less
The SB library at the Managua office is quiet for a time. When the children return, they will certainly enjoy the new designs brought to us by Nereyda, Yorshual, Sharon and Jael. Thank you Nereyda for your creativity and the supplies. The planets and paper birds were found in a box of school supplies, special thanks to the mystery donor. 😀🌏📖🌳 ... See MoreSee Less
