Football in Nicaragua!

The girls team!
The girls team!

Hi there

School trips are really important for the children we work with as it opens their eyes to new ideas and communities. In Nicaragua an important part of their schedule is the trips to play football!!

Both our girls and boys teams get to go and play in local leagues, (the photo below is our girls team). The students are always very excited to be picked up in the bus, maximising their time to spend singing their favourite songs and just enjoying the adventure. The teams play in Esteli and we make sure we mix the two schools together so they can meet each other and work together.

It is always great to see the interaction between the students from La Thompson and Alexis as they get to know each other better and also just having a lot of fun playing football. A 'Man (or Woman) of the Match is always called at the end before jumping on the bus and heading back to the communities. 

What a great way to spend the day in Nicaragua and an experience the children will never forget!

Cheers

Hi there!

We are three months through the year now and I just wanted to update you to let you know three month's worth of birthdays have been celebrated across the five countries at the end of each of the three months! 

Every month we gift the children with the birthdays in that month a lovely birthday present to open in front of the whole school! They also get a kiss and a cuddle from each child and the teachers, first place in the juice and snack line and a chance to break a piñata and find as many sweets as possible!

In three months we have given around 250 gifts, 250 juices and 250 snacks, plus 33,000-ish sweets have been scambled for on the floor!!
