ViviendasLeón is an international sustainable development organization. Every summer we organize trips for volunteers from the United States to build schools or housing in rural communities around León, Nicaragua. Participants will learn about sustainable development while living and working alongside the people of these communities. Construction of schools supports the education of children, one of the principle cornerstones of development. Housing construction stabilizes families so that they can better contribute to the development of their community.
Participants will live with a host family, learn about sustainable development and assist in construction. There are also daily trips to environmental sites, relaxation on nearby beaches, and visits to sites of historic and cultural importance. The delegations will be lead by our Program Director from the United States with support from our staff in León.
