One of the highlights of our Nicaragua trip is feeding the children at the Chinandega Dump in Nicaragua. These
Volunteer Costa Rica 2014 participants spent time today at the local orphanage in La Fortuna, Costa Rica giving valuable time to toddlers and pre-schoolers.
This experience wore the volunteers out. Running and chasing them all morning was one of the highlights of the trip for many of the participants.
We finished our wall murio on the kindergarten in La Carpio, Costa Rica and painted a shanty home today. One of the goals of the community is to paint all of the buildings and shanty homes with bright colors and positive messages. Time well spent! Thank you Wright & Associates Family Healthcare, PLLC with Wendy L. Wright and Eric Wright for sponsoring our projects! #colormyworld #volunteercostarica2014 #poverty

These kids appreciated the soccer gear that Caden collected for his eagle scout project. However, they had no idea what to do with the shin guards. We had to show them how to put them on. The most gracious, happy, loving kids!!

This little guy was a blast. We would have taken him home from the orphanage if we could have!
Thoughts from Heather Vandygriff
Color My World sponsored a brand new playground and soccer field at Los Zoros School in Jiquillio, Nicaragua.
These volunteers got to work to make it happen! Take a Look!
Today, we are in the Chinandega at the garbage dump feeding lunch to the children.
Take a look at our experience!
This experience was sponsored by Wright Associates Family Healthcare in Amherst & Concord.
Color My World and Wright Medical & Associates sponsored a lunch for Los Zorros Elementary students invited for lunch at Montys Surf Lodge today.
Children from all over the village came to eat lunch!
Great story here! The boy in green has a little sister who was born in Luis Gerardo Caceres Lindo truck on route to the hospital one year ago! He is saving his meal to take home to her!
Count your many blessings! Building new latrines in Nicaragua is like digging your own grave. For 5 hours, our teams dug in the hardest clay possible at the local elementary school while some painted the inside and outside of the school in the hottest weather possible. Toilettes are a luxury here for school children!
