Review for Friends of Cantera Inc, Baton Rouge, LA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

What can I say about CANTERA? I have been a volunteer here with the organization for almost two years and through those two years, I have fallen in love with the accompaniment and work that CANTERA provides to the most poor communities in and around Managua, the capital city. I work primarily with the immersion and exchange program as a delegations coordinator, receiving groups and visitors from outside the country who come here to work and learn more about Nicaragua and CANTERA. I have personally seen the transformation in myself as a volunteer with the organization and also in the people that have come down on week-long trips based on the relationships that they have created and developed over time. Along with the work that CANTERA does in the communities with children, adolescents, youth, men and women, CANTERA promotes building inter-cultural relationships, creating links between people here in Nicaragua and those from other countries. I am a strong believer that in building these relationships can we then together dream and then gradually transform our own society - a better society for all people.
