Earlier this year I received a lot of requests for me to share information about the development work in which I am involved in Nicaragua. Today I received this note from Allison, one of my contacts with SOS, who is organizing the next trip. If you are interested in participating, follow the link in the note below.
At this time, my intent is to return in the spring when, hopefully, we will be ready to install the first prototype windmill based pump as part of Winds of Change. The community mentioned in the note will be the site where the first windmill will be installed. For an update on the project go to www.windsofchangecanada.com
I hope this email finds you well. I just wanted to touch base and send along some warm "hello's" and "thank you's" from Pedro Arauz. I've been down in Central America for the last couple weeks to visit some of our partners and projects, and had the chance to stop by Pedro Arauz. Julian set up a little meeting with the community and they told me stories and showed me some of the donations that you all left.
The community is incredibly thankful and speaks of your group so highly! You all made such a positive impact there and I'm so proud that you were SOS volunteers.
We're also running another trip this year to finish the agricultural resource centre, build a school garden and put a fence up. I know you may not be able to make it, but we're having a bit of a harder time recruiting for the trip this year so if you have any friends who might be looking for this kind of opportunity, or can share the info with your networks that would be fantastic. http://sosvolunteertrips.org/Trip-Info/?TripID=327
Thanks again for all your hard work, and being such amazing ambassadors for Canada and SOS.
