GOOD DEEDS DAY IN NICARAGUA

Academic volunteers are the ones bringing this initiative to Nicaragua, seeking to spread through the whole country by making good deeds. Do we have your support to make it happen? Contact us and we will provide you with guidance to become a member of this wonderful team, which works untiringly to build a better world.

Nicaragua has been celebrating and taking part in Good Deeds Day for five years. The first edition was in 2017, where we hosted 25 social projects, which included providing children in low-income schools with school supplies and visiting shelters and orphanages, among others. In 2018, we hosted the second edition and successfully partnered with other institutions, such as Teletón and Pajarito Azul. In 2019 we reached an incredible number: 900 volunteers and over 150 projects! In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we carried out projects to help prevent the spread of the virus. In 2021, still in times of pandemic, we successfully launched more than 50 projects aimed at assisting people at risk.

MISSION STATEMENT

We understood from the beginning that the best reward we can get when doing a good deed, simple as can be, is seeing the smiles of those around us. As an Institution of Higher Education, we have seen the smiles of our students as they benefit from getting involved in actions with invaluable effects for different vulnerable sectors.  

Seeing our volunteers become agents of change and social integration is awe-inspiring. This is why we see Good Deeds Day as a bridge that connects us with other people, transforms us, and creates empathy. A bridge that shakes off stereotypes and gender gaps, bringing us together as a community.

SDG Focus

FEATURED PROJECT

For Good Deeds Day in Nicaragua, kids are paramount. One good deed we perform year after year is providing children with toys in the most vulnerable areas in the country. In December 2020, we hosted a toy giveaway for over 600 children in Salinas Grandes, León, and other surrounding areas in the west.

Thanks to the donations and our volunteers’ work, not only could we bring food and toys, but also joy and enthusiasm to this community, which suffered the impact of the pandemic, poverty, unemployment and climate change, with tropical storms hitting the Central American region.
