Nicaragua Signature Impact

5 days // november 7-11, 2018


an important note re: journeys to nicaragua:

Due political turmoil, we are currently suspending all our journeys to Nicaragua. We will maintain open communications with our partners on the ground and we hope the country's social unrest will ease quickly and peacefully both for the people of Nicaragua and so that we can continue to introduce travelers to this incredible, vibrant community. We plan to revisit this decision regularly - if you want more information or want to be notified once we are able to put these journeys back on the calendar, don't hesitate to reach out.

our community partner in Nicaragua

Association Las Tías was started by eight women after the revolution and subsequent Contra Wars swept the nation in the 70's and 80's and left thousands of children homeless. 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.

Community Engagement

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.
On this trip, you'll work alongside leaders at Las Tías in León, Nicaragua. Learn more about Las Tías' powerful community work via our philanthropic partner, Spark Ventures - here.
