“If you work for Education Plus you have to be aware of the fact that you have huge responsibilities.  If you are willing to really get involved, to work hard and to make a change, you will see the full impact the project has on the kids, because YOU made it possible.  So if you decide to volunteer with Education Plus, consider it as a real “job”. Trust me, it will be worth it, because once you see these kids smile, you will never forget it.” – Leonie, Germany

Granada, Nicaragua

Granada on Loneley PlanetIMGP2114

Most volunteers choose to live in the colonial center of the city of Granada.  While it is possible to live there on as little as $200 a month, a western standard of living would realistically need a budget of a minimum of at least $400 a month.  Rents in Granada range from $60 – $400+ per month.  It is a 10 to 15 cord ($0.40 – $0.60) taxi ride or a 15 minute bike ride from Granada to the project.  Granada is located approximately 45 minutes from the capital of Managua, 2 hours from the beach and 3 hours from the Costa Rica border.
