Roadmonkey, a California based philanthropic
adventure travel company, and Fabretto Foundation have joined forces
to build a sustainable income-generating garden in San Isidero, Nicaragua!
||*About the project: *
Following 4 days of a surfing, swimming, hiking, and horseback riding
adventure, we'll complete a sustainable volunteer project in 3 days,
working in cooperation with the excellent Fabretto Foundation..
We'll travel to San Isidro, a small village outside of Managua that
lacks running water. We'll be working to rebuild and renovate income-producing
chicken coops on the local farm, which also provides fresh fruits
and vegetables in Fabretto's school lunch program providing critical
nutrition and health to the children.
It will be three days of intense, hands-on
work to create this sustainable, community garden project. The
work will be done with involvement of the local community.
The Roadmonkey project will be in partnership
with The Fabretto Foundation.
Foundation is a non-governmental organization
(NGO) whose mission is "to enable impoverished Nicaraguan
children and their families in underserved communities to break
the cycle of poverty and reach their full potential through programs
promoting education, nutrition, health, and community development.
Catholic Salesian missionary Father Rafael Maria Fabretto first
began working with Nicaraguan orphans in 1948, the organization
has evolved to a school program run in concert with the public
school system, supplementing the children's educational and nutritional
needs by offering tutoring and meal programs to approximately
10,000 students from 50 underserved rural and urban communities
in Managua and North Central Nicaragua. More recently Fabretto
has continued its evolution by developing a robust secondary education
tutoring program that has also incorporated an experiential learning
program developed in Columbia called SAT, Sistema de Aprendizaje
Tutorial (Tutorial Learning System) .
Fabretto is committed not only to education but also to offering
its students the hope and opportunity to improve their economic
