our community partner in Nicaragua

Association Las Tías was started by eight women after the 1989 revolution swept the nation and left thousands of children orphaned. They began reaching out to these children to provide shelter, education and health with what little they had. Today, they have two thriving community centers that provide meals, education, health care, job skills training and micro-loans to the local community.

Ignite’s philanthropic arm, Spark Ventures, has been working with Las Tías since 2012 to provide sustainable support and empowerment. As part of the community engagement, Ignite travelers learn and participate in the Las Tías community center programs, help facilitate creative and team building projects, share meals with the Las Tías leaders, and participate in other rich cultural exchange and collaboration.

Making a Difference

our experiences are built around partnerships that empower communities

Engage in projects that are creative, physical or strategic.
  • Creative projects include academic learning, reading, art, music and sports.
  • Physical activities include giving local workers a break from their regular duties in the kitchen, serving meals, or joining projects like painting, planting, or landscaping.
  • Strategic activities are designed to match travelers with specific skill sets or backgrounds with organizational, business, or leadership development related needs and opportunities.
You'll work alongside leaders at Las Tías in León, Nicaragua. Las Tías was started by 8 business women in 1989 after the revolution in their country. They began reaching out to street children and 20 years later, they had two thriving community centers providing meals, education, health care, and job skills training – serving over 150 youth annually. Learn more about Las Tías and our long-standing commitment to their powerful community work via our philanthropic partner, Spark Ventures - here.
