In an effort to promote volunteerism, community service and good deeds in Nicaragua, The Nicaragua Dispatch has created this space as an open-source directory of volunteer opportunities in the country.
This is an open invitation to all NGOs, charities and other organizations that offer volunteer opportunities in Nicaragua to include a brief, 100-word description of your organization’s mission, volunteer opportunities and contact info (website, email, telephone).
Just type your brief description and contact info into the comments box below. Please note: you must write the full website address and email into the body of the comment– the contact lines for email and web do not appear on your comment, so the only way to have them show up is to type them into the comment box itself.
This article will be a permanent post under the category “news to use.”
Please respect this space as a serious attempt to create a unique list of volunteer opportunities in Nicaragua. Inappropriate or unrelated comments will be deleted, as will any entries that go notably over the 100 word limit (we don’t need to know everything about your organization, just tell us where to look to find more information).
Note to aspiring volunteers: This is a non-vetted, reader-submitted list of organizations and The Nicaragua Dispatch does not endorse or stand by any of them (other than the first one on the list). While there are many individuals and organizations that do excellent work and good deeds throughout Nicaragua, there are also more than a few creeps skulking about. Volunteers are urged to please do your homework and look into any organization before signing up.
