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
Check out how one family came to Volunteer Nicaragua 2014 and served together
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!
The work continued today at the local orphanage playing with the children and painting the school nearby and the baseball dugouts. The heat and humidity is at an all time high! I suffered a heat stroke yesterday with all of the symptoms leaving me resting today to regain my strength! I was sad I had to miss out on the festivities but here are a couple of photos from the orphanage!
Volunteer Nicaragua 2014 has arrived from across the country after a series of delays, lightning storms and one person detained at passport control. Final time of arrival nearly 2:00am last night! We spent the day recovering, adjusting to the heat, visiting our projects and playing soccer America vs. Nicaragua!
