  • Description

    Description

    Our place is a hotel and restaurant in the mountains of Miraflor in the north of Nicaragua. We grow our own coffee and other crops. Most of the people in Miraflor live from agriculture. To provide more working opportunities in the future, we want to give some free education for the local youth in teaching English and give environmental education. Also we would like to offer free activities like soccer training. More creative ideas to spend time with the children of the community are welcome!
