The Face of Nicaragua

“The people of Nicaragua are its strength.  An American friend tells me why he has returned time and again to this small place in the heart of Central America: namely, to re-connect to the human race. Here is a photographic chronicle of the rich vein of humanity flowing through this proud, intriguing country.

“These photographs were taken several years ago when I accompanied a citizen delegation to Nicaragua under the auspices of Gettysburg College’s Project Gettysburg-León.  Over nearly 40 years, PGL has done invaluable work in that country, the second poorest in the Western Hemisphere, by involving hundreds of volunteer students and local citizens in its ongoing mission to help provide sustainable empowerment to the Nicaraguan people.”
