Reviews for Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners of the Americas, Inc.
I have worked with a variety of nonprofits, either on their board of directors, or as a partner through my Rotary club. Based on my varied experience I can easily say that the dedication of the Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners volunteers, the well-organized staff, and the passion of all involved is simply outstanding. I have been proud to partner with this organization and hope to continue working with them in the future.
No other organization has offered such a return on my investment of time, dollars, friendships and feelings. No matter what the WNP contributes to our relationship with Nicaragua I am constantly inspied and amazed by the scope of people that are effected by the organizationsame commitment and volunteers. This has been by far the only organization that has given me more than I have given.
The Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners are an incredibly dedicated group of volunteers. With a strong emphasis on education, they strive to help the people obtain new skills (and the equipment to do it) to be able to better their standard of living, and, in turn, help others. They often will learn a new skill themselves before traveling to Nicaragua to pass it on. They travel with suitcases full of donated goods - from renovated computers to sports equipment. Their work is amazing!
The Wisconsin Nicaragua Partnership is a great example of not only helping people who are in need, but of teaching them to help themselves. I am impressed with the work the volunteers do, both in Wisconsin and Nicaragua. I am proud to be a part of this group!
An amazing group of people in both countries working together to help those in need through education, support and inspiration. I first learned of this group on a local TV news story and it caught my attention because I was already planning a trip to Nicaragua. I soon learned of the organizations benefits for the many peoples in Nicaragua. In Wisconsin many donated items are packaged up and prepared for transit in shipping containers. These are shipped via US Armed Services at no cost to a port near Nicaragua. Once received, the items are distributed out to the many different learning centers all over the country. The neat part is they are used to educate and inspire others to better themselves, not just a gift that might not get used. When I was in Nicaragua, I helped with some learning centers and helped build a new cook stove for a Managua School. A great organization with amazing people in both countries working together to make a difference for so many.
I had the chance to write a children's book for the Lending Libraries program for this organization in my Spanish class. Not only did I get to practice my Spanish language skills, I was giving Nicaraguan children the opportunity to learn. I have volunteered two more times after, and I am so happy that I have become involved in this organization! It has a great mission, and the other people involved are so nice to work with. I have had nothing but positive experiences with the Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners of the Americas!
Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners of America is a seed of hope and progress. I personally have seen the positive impact that Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners have done in rural community of Nicaragua. Llano Largo is an example of a new growing community where a sewing project is starting changing the live of many young women by giving them the opportunity of learn a craft that will help them to improve their live style. Through my experience of working with Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners, I have learned the great value of doing volunteer work. Giving back to the community is a generous work to do.
This is a very dedicated group of volunteers, who always seem to go an extra step to solve problems they face in Nicaragua. Whether the work is done here or in Nicaragua, it is always done on a person to person basis, working with the people in need, not a bureaucratic agency.
I appreciate this great organization Wisconsi/nicaragua es a great nonprofits organization they do a temendueos job in nicaragua , helping people in need ,children in need ,I so proud to be part on this great organization
I recently donated some items for this agency and attended their warehouse when they were packing items being sent to the Nicaragua. I was impressed with the enthusiasm of the volunteers who assisted that day, the number of volunteers, and really impressed with the amount and quality of items being donated. Our community has rallied around this project, and it was refreshing to see how the items directly benefit the communities and people in Nicaragua. The agency keeps volunteers and the community well informed via newsletters. One can feel the energy of the group once involved and the agency is making a difference in the lives of the people it helps.
