Trip with GRID to Nicaragua:
During their 8-day trip in Nicaragua, participants will have a chance to experience Nicaraguan culture, learn about community-centered sustainable development, and explore the roots of energy poverty. They will immerse in the rural community, staying with local host families and working alongside the women's cooperative, community members and GRID staff to install the project. They'll have the opportunity to learn from the women's cooperative about their organization and the projects they implement in their community, as well as tour the coffee plantations in El Regadio, see the process of coffee production, and cook and share local foods with families. Before and after the project, they'll be participating in unique cultural activities and organized sightseeing in Nicaragua.
