JZ's Charity Trip to Nicaragua - October, 2013

Julie travel blog
Once again, welcome to my trip journal! This one is a quick one week charity trip to Nicaragua through Spark Ventures. www.sparkventures.org

In January of this year, I found out about about this charity, Spark Ventures....a charity that seemed to match a vision that I had once thought of starting, however, it has a very robust business model which was my missing link. Spark Ventures started in 2007 and is a Chicago based non-profit that partners with international organizations in Nicaragua and Zambia to help poverty ridden children obtain education, healthcare and nutrition from a model that revolves around self-sustainment rather than dependency on the resources given to them.

Within the past month, I have just been named as a founding associate board member of Spark Ventures and will be traveling with them to their new partnership organization, Asociacion Las Tias, in Nicaragua. (They also do trips to Zambia, Africa...my true passion!)

Come join me on the experience! And if the trip hits your heart and motivates you, get involved in helping feed a child, experience a trip, or learn more about the non-profit at its annual fall event in Chicago on November, 15 2013.
