Phenomenal Photo Stream from Nicaragua

joselinenicaragua.jpgI love these images from Empowerment International Director (and friend) Kathy Adams and her Nica protégées. Kathy, other volunteers, and Nicaraguan community leaders provide numerous education programs to children in a village outside Granada called Villa Esperanza. Enjoy the photos, poke around EI’s site, then check out these opportunities to get involved. Pictured above is Joseline, daughter of a community leader in Villa Esperanza. Reports Kathy:

“One day I gave her the camera … Very quickly she became adept at using it so I had her take photos of each child we were considering for the program. It was then that I realized the power of giving children the opportunity to learn photography.”
