Nicaragua to Vermont Cultural Exchanges

Although Planting Hope is best known for its trips to Nicaragua, our organization also dedicates itself to creating full-circle cultural exchanges. By bringing some of our Nicaraguan staff members to the United States for 1-2 month visits, Planting Hope offers 3-5 day “Artists in Residencies” at local schools & community organizations.  Planting Hope staff perform and give workshops on an array of activities from Nicaraguan dance to theater to music to art to Spanish language lessons. In addition, these trips are also an opportunity for our staff to reconnect with individuals who participated in past service-learning trips to Nicaragua.

Past delegation participants can help us fund-raise for the 2016 exchange by downloading a letter to Friends and family Final 16 and a Planting Hope Delegation Collage 2016 of your time in Nicaragua.
