What’s Happening in Nicaragua?

Dear Friends,

If you have either been to Nicaragua and spent time volunteering with the CDCA (Center for Development in Central America) or you’ve been a supporter of Lopez High School’s Nicaragua service-learning trip or would like to know what is going on politically, Becca Mohally Renk from the CDCA is coming to Lopez and will be doing a presentation at Grace Hall on Monday evening, October 14th at 7pm.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Becca, she has lived and worked in Nicaragua for close to 20 years and is a wealth of fascinating information and perspectives on the country and on US/Nicaragua relations in general. Although Nicaragua is rarely at the forefront of the news cycle these days, U.S. policy continues to have a significant impact on the Nicaraguan people, particularly the most vulnerable.
Becca is the mother of two girls (teen and preteen) who have lived and attended public school in Nicaragua their entire lives, so she can offer interesting insights into public schooling and her family’s decision to live and serve long term in one of the poorest countries in the world.
I hope you can join us for this opportunity to listen to Becca’s perspective about what’s currently happening in Nicaragua. And if you’re unable to make it, or you’d like to support Becca’s work with the CDCA, I invite you to go to their website to donate: https://jhc-cdca.org/

Thank you.
