2017 Charitour

Our 2017 Charitour was a great success. We had more rain, which caused delays to our school visits. We did get the chance to go and be with the students for 2 days. We also had the grand opening of the community center in La Calle Real. There were hundreds of visitors with dancing and food. It was a great celebration.

I have had the opportunity to travel to Nicaragua for the last three years and do humanitarian work with the World Wide Child Relief Foundation, specifically being involved in teaching different forms of dance to the children of the very impoverished community of La Calle Real. At the end of dance class last year we had extra time so I thought it would be fun to teach a little ballet. We set up chairs for make shift bars and I dug through my bag for a little music. I did not know what to expect....

I spent time every day teaching various recreational activities and outdoor games to the elementary school kids--everything from kickball to jump rope. For many it was their first experience with any of it. I remember one boy, a 5th or 6th grader, who futilely attempted to jump rope. The timing completely eluded him: He'd jump and the rope would come round just as his feet hit the ground. Over and over he tried. Over and over the rope tangled - and he grimaced. A group gathered but didn't laugh....

Sydney, a 12 year old volunteer with Worldwide Child Relief Foundation, decided she wanted to raise money for school supplies and a new printer for the elementary school in La Calle Real, Nicaragua. She emailed the principal of her school and got approval to sell Popsicles and ice cream sandwiches at the 5th/6th grade recess for 2 days.

I was presented with the idea of traveling to Nicaragua, and in less than two months later I was nervously, boarding a plane. The next morning after arriving in Nicaragua we loaded up the vans and set out for the schools where we would be working. When we arrived I began pulling out balls, frisbees, and other equipment for ...

This past March I was able to work in classrooms with teachers and students at an elementary school and then do a teacher training at the end of the week. In advance I did a school supplies drive and was able to collect enough materials to hand out a bag of supplies to every teacher at the school since they have nothing in their classrooms to work with, not even a set of crayons. I was intimidated by the prospect of teaching the teachers as I have no formal teaching experience, but I knew they w...
