Surf Nicaragua

Beside the humbled experience in helping to build a high school in a remote coastal region in Nicaragua with Surf For Life and Waves of Hope, I had time in the early morning to do some surfing.

Volcano Boarding in Nicaragua

Near Leon, Nicaragua I got the chance to participate at a Volcano Boarding. After a one hour drive from Leon we hiked one hour up the volcano. Then it was time to go 500 meter downhill. Wow what a great fun experience 🙂

Here some impressions from the daytrip:

Helping to build a school in Nicaragua

In April I got the chance to participate at an volunteer project from “Surf for Life” and “Waves of Hope” in Nicaragua. Thank you for your continuous support and donation for this amazing project. Now that I have been there I can tell for sure that your donation will have a great positive impact on the community there in Nicaragua.

It was such an humbled experience to see how people, who have only little resources and infrastructure, try to improve there lives by education and working hard. In the community where the high school is now build there is currently no economic system (no supermarket, no other services were people could spend there earned money) so all the money is currently going to the city which doesn’t help the community. Unemployment in Nicaragua is between 50 and 80%(!!!) depending on the age group.

The new high-school is also used as a vocational training center to educate the students to become bakers, mechanics, hairstylists or organic farmers. Giving them the opportunity to grow their own economic community system in the future.

If you have the chance support Waves of Hope and thus this community. Great small things are happening here!

Surf for Life

Today I would like to introduce you to Surf for Life, an non profit organization sponsoring educational and community driven development projects in coastal communities mainly in Central America. But here is first the story how I found this organization …

Back in November 2012 in Germany I was about to get ready for my 6 month around the world trip and at the workplace they were setting up a table soccer tournament. Together with my friend we wanted to participate and eventually came up with our team name: “Surf for Life”. We thought that was a perfect name for our team as she is passionate about Kite-Surfing and I love surfing.

So in the evening I thought: Let’s do a google search for this name and there it was “Surf For Life” an non profit organization sponsoring educational and community driven development projects in coastal communities mainly in Central America. Check out there video:

And in Spring 2013, they have a new volunteer project in Nicaragua and what a coincidence I’m in Central America by this time and thus I was very happy to contribute to the project by volunteering one week at the End of April 2013 to this project to help to give hope to many kids to get a high school education and thus help there communities to thrive and develop in the future.

Donation Status Surf For Life 2013-01-16All costs for the volunteer week are already covered by me and Now I need your support. I’m fundraising to help with the costs of the construction and materials and wanted to know if you would like to help me with a donation? The goal is to raise at least 2000US$. If you can spare some money to help to build a school in Manzanillo, Nicaragua and help that kids get a possibility for a basic education then please donate via the following site

Thank you in advance for your support! I will keep you updated about this project.
