This is my girl's club, Club de Muchachas, in El Limon, Nicaragua, in Nueva Segovia close to the Honduran border. This area later became known as "Contra country" after the revolution. These girls took up leadership roles in their community, and together, with some support and faciltation from me, helped to build a Centro de Salud (health center), fund raise for medicines and vaccinations, and bring the government sponsored doctor and nurse to the community. They were amazing! We did a health/nutrition charla a week where we made a recipe and had a lesson on the nutritional value of the ingredients. This day we were going on an outing using mules and horses - a paseo and picnic just for us!
