Volunteer Travel


granada 2

Namlo International helps people travel to it’s partner communities, to give an opportunity to help, to learn about the culture, challenges and ways of life.  Traveling with Namlo gives people the chance to learn about development at the field level, as we travel to our remote communities, stay with local people, and help with projects that can have a real impact in the communities.  Volunteers have the option of being involved in construction projects, teaching English, helping with a sports program, agriculture, or just learning the local language.  We can arrange trips for volunteers to travel to Nepal or Nicaragua for any time, and for any size –  even family groups.  An added bonus is that some or all of your trip may be tax deductible (consult your tax attorney).dscf0265.jpg

In Nicaragua, we’ll travel to Namlo’s project sites in remote, mountain communities near Esteli, and get first-hand experience with our Greenhouse Project. We’ll also visit schools and sanitary water systems implemented by Namlo.

After the hard and rewarding work is done, there’ll be time to exploring the beauty of Nicaragua. From the volcanic crater lake of Laguna de Apoyo to the deep hidden beauty of the Somoto Canyon, the historical city of Granada and the beaches, the wonderful surf and relaxed nightlife of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua is loaded with opportunities for adventures!
