Join Potters for Peace for a 10-day Work Brigade to Loma Panda, Nicaragua. Loma Panda is a very small mountain settlement located in the municipality of San Lucas, in the department of Madriz. It is in northern Nicaragua, near the Honduras border and it is VERY remote.
In Loma Panda, we will work with a women’s ceramic cooperative. This special group of women is famous for creating whimsical figures and ceramic dolls with movable parts. We will spend most of the week helping them replace the deteriorated roof over their studio. Halfway through the week we will take a break and travel to Canon de Somoto, for a swim and to take in the breathtaking scenery.
All tools will be provided and no special experience is required. The tentative brigade schedule is as follows:
- Aug 21 Arrival in Managua
- Aug 22 Travel to Loma Panda
- Aug 23 – 28 Rebuilding roof in Loma Panda with a mid-week break to the Somoto Canyons
- Aug 29 Return to Managua
- Aug 30 Departure day
