Birthdays in Nicaragua

We closed the end of February 2011 by celebrating the February birthdays of students in our schools in La Thompson and Chiriza. Both parties consisted of piñata bashing, gifts for each child who had a birthday in February and of course eating candy!! To begin and close out the party in La Thompson, GVI Phoenix staff, volunteers and the students did some major dancing!

The kids really enjoy the parties as do volunteers and staff. It was a well deserved day of respite for our wonderful, hard-working volunteers and staff on the ground in Nicaragua and a day to reward the work of the students.


How does GVI Phoenix make a difference?

The following film was made in Guatemala, though the message is the same across all GVI Phoenix projects
