San Isidero, Nicaragua
Roadmonkey Project
January 2012

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.

- Fabretto 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.

Since 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 wellbeing.
