In our May Nicaragua update you can find out how you can join our Nicaragua Adventure in 2020, read Amos Trust’s Director Chris Rose’s reflections on the changes in Teustepe over the last 5 years, hear from CEPAD director Dámaris Albuquerque and find out about where you can see Dámaris and Gilberto when they visit the UK this Autumn.
18-year-old Millie Rose, who first visited Nicaragua in 2015, is spending 4 months working in CEPAD’s office before starting an International Development course at Portsmouth University. We asked her to share a little about her impressions of CEPAD’s work — particularly after the recent flooding and the political situation.
“When I come into Nicaraguan airspace I can feel my soul re-enter my body.” Those of you who’ve been there will resonate with those words of Nicaraguan author Gioconda Belli. I felt something similar when I returned there in February, co-leading the recent Amos trip." Peter Bone shares his thoughts about his return visit to Nicaragua.
Katie Hagley shares an update from CEPAD, our partner in Nicaragua, about the current political situation.
"Through this programme CEPAD partners with rural Nicaraguan villages for 5 years of training, which focuses on supporting the community in the areas that they identify as most important for their development." Fresh from an Amos visit to Nicaragua, Katie Hagley writes about how the community of Teustepe is flourishing.
