Located in Granada, Nicaragua, La Esperanza Granada is a volunteer group focusing on children’s education.

Founded in 2002, they started in one small village on the outskirts of Granada, and are now helping more than 2,000 children in poverty-stricken areas.

Their volunteers go to local schools and learning centers where they assist teachers, tutor young children, introduce children to computers, teach English, and help to stimulate a genuine interest in learning. Volunteers come from around the world, for varying lengths of time.



La Esperanza Granada tries to help in a noninvasive way, working directly with the children and with the local schools, learning centers, teachers, and parents to meet educational needs.
