buildOn is an international non-profit organization that empowers people and transforms lives by partnering after-school service programs in the U.S. with communities in developing countries to build schools.
buildOn’s Ambassador Trek Program has a unique opportunity for individuals or groups to fundraise for a school in Nicaragua and then travel to a buildOn project site to help with the construction. Ambassador Trek participants spend one week in a small village, working on the school and immersing themselves in the local culture.
While living and working in a rural community in one of the poorest countries in the world, participants have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of hundreds of children and adults. They experience first hand the power of education to break the cycle of poverty and replace hardship and despair with hope.
