Review for FNE International, E Weymouth , MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This August I went to Nicaragua with FNE to participate on a housing project, where we worked with a group to build a home for a family in Chacraseca. The experience was profound and life changing for me. On the trip, a small group of us had the opportunity to build a small and functional home for a family. Over the course of the week, we had the opportunity to meet and get to know some of the local families. I've never felt more welcome and connected to a group of perfect strangers. The people in Chacraseca were incredibly warm, full of positive energy, and made us feel completely at home.

Michael Cipoletti, FNE's president, was involved 100% of the time with us on these projects. He organized a perfectly balanced trip. Not only were we able to get a significant amount of work accomplished to leave a lasting impact, we had the opportunity to see Nicaragua and and do a number of exciting day trips. Simply put, this trip was a blast from start to finish.

After my experience in the community of Chacraseca, I'm looking forward to becoming more involved with FNE and return to work on as many projects as I can. Having the chance to work with FNE has been both rewarding and more fun than I could have imagined. I'd recommend these trips to anyone, in a heartbeat. I can't speak highly enough of my experience, and I can't wait to go back.
