The breath of fresh air goes both ways. Travel with other educators on this amazing,
immersive trip where you’ll humbly support Nicaraguan teachers in ways they otherwise don’t get. At
the same time: experience the personal fulfillment of being far from home and seeing your career
happen through another’s eyes.
Starting in April of 2018, the country of Nicaragua has experienced extensive political unrest, including a period of violent protests. Thankfully, violence has significantly decreased since then. The majority of recent conflict has been seen at political rallies in a few main cities. You may be asking, so is it even safe to go to Nicaragua? Crossroads relies heavily on information and guidance from our partners that are living and working there each and every day. They have communicated that roads have been clear and no violence has been seen where they are located for quite some time. They are able to work and live like they had before the unrest started and are ready to host groups in 2019. Rest assured that Crossroads would never send people to a location that we felt was unsafe, and we will not let fear guide our decisions. We are excited to get back to helping our partners Amigos for Christ, and connecting our people with their sponsored Compassion Children.
