Cristhian and Karla sharing their culture through dance.
August brought many exciting projects to WI Nicaragua Partners. One being the travel of two Youth Ambassadors from Nicaragua to WI, to share with everyone here, specifically teens, the impact we are having and are able to have in the lives of so many in Nicaragua. Fiesta Nicaragua was held August 8th in Milwaukee WI, the Youth traveled to WI and stayed three days in Milwaukee to prepare for the Fiesta. The day of the Fiesta they shared about their culture and lifestyle through dance and music. They also shared with many the positive impact the WI is having on them through projects such as the Youth Ambassador program. The students also traveled to Evansville where they did a talk at the Hispanic Center, and also at a Youth Group in Stevens Point, to motivate teens to be active and create added awareness, and lastly an event in Stevens Point at Emy J's called Nica Fest.
All that they did added great enhancement to the awareness of the needs in Nicaragua, and also to encourage US teens that the steps they take to help this country really do have great impact. Many thanks to all who have donated to us through Global Giving, allowing educational and helpful projects to become reality for so many!
