Project: Community Centre Construction, Esteli Nicaragua (May 2007)
Partners: FUNARTE and Project HOPE
Beneficiaries: FUNARTE and the children and youth that benefit from their programming
Student volunteers from Grant MacEwan college, who make up Project HOPE, fundraise for their projects and travel to the South to participate in development projects in partnership with communities. They will travel to Esteli, where they will help in the construction of a new community centre for FUNARTE. FUNARTE will use the centre to conduct their cultural, artistic and human rights programming with children and youth. It will be used to host workshops with children, youth, educators and parents and will become a vibrant location for popular education and community development activities.
