Upcoming Trips

2016 Calendar of Short-Term Trips to Nicaragua

Youth_013There is no better way to see the work of UNIDOS Nicaragua than to go to Nicaragua.  Every year, several teams of volunteers visit rural Nicaragua with the goal of encouraging and supporting the people through a variety of activities in partnership with local leaders.  These trips are especially meaningful if you are sponsoring a student at Escuela Cristiana Havila as you will have an opportunity to meet your sponsored child.  Most trips last about 10 days, and they are run in partnership with Northshore Community Church of Kirkland, Washington.

If you are interested in any of these trips, contact the team leader or UNIDOS Nicaragua for more information.

Join this team of women as they travel to Los Cedros, Nicaragua for their ninth annual women’s conference. Worship alongside and serve the women of Los Cedros.  For more information, contact team leader Katie Day or Loretta Trainor.

– Sponsor A Student Team (February 13-21)

Join in helping with the beginning of the school year at Escuela Cristiana Havila in Los Cedros.  Team members will help with the many tasks needed for the students to connect with their sponsors here in America and will try to bless the teachers in appreciation for all their hard work.  This team is well-suited for children and families.  For more information, please contact Kerri Fredrickson.
