We are thrilled to share with you more exciting new developments from Amizade! Volunteers now have the opportunity to travel with Amizade to Nicaragua!

In partnership with the Cooperative La Hermandad, Amizade volunteers will have the opportunity to visit and experience life on a rural coffee farm in the mountains of central Nicaragua. Volunteers will serve with the cooperative and learn about agro-ecology tourism, the history and politics of Nicaragua, and the important role coffee has played, and continues to play, in the region.

College students, you have the unique opportunity to be a part of Amizade’s very first Spring Break course in Nicaragua! Fair Trade and Cooperative Development in Nicaragua is a 1 credit week long course offered in March of 2013. Visit the course page to learn more and apply!
