Managua (Nicaragua) -- In outlying urban districts

From July 26 to August 9 a group of young Canadian women, under the coordination of Fonteneige University Residence in Montreal, traveled to Nicaragua to take part in the project entitled “University Solidarity,” promoted by the La Rivera residence in Nicaragua.

From its beginning in 1995, La Rivera has carried out charitable initiatives in social work and health in the poor outlying areas of Managua such as Nueva Vida, Esquipulas, Diriamba, and Salinas Grande.

This year, the Nicaraguan students with their Canadian colleagues worked in the Esquipulas district and in Diriamba. Their project consisted in painting homes and in coordinating conferences on civics in the 30 public schools of Diriamba. They also helped care for a group of children with Down Syndrome, and visited families of limited resources who had children with this handicap.
