The continuing conflict in Nicaragua has had dire effects on the people there. When traveling to Granada last year my sons and I instantly fell in love with this colonial town.
Casa Xalteva is a school located in Granada who works with children and teens in situations of risk and vulnerability.
As a social enterprise, the local children's program is completely funded by the Spanish Immersion Program and donations.
Because of the downturn in tourism Casa Xalteva is one of the many organizations affected. To fund programming they are currently offering engaging Spanish classes via Skype- my sons take the classes and love them!
Classes are $10/hour. A great addition for parents and older siblings brush up on Spanish. For more information--
