Hello Glimpsers, Leaders and parents!

Your most wonderful and exciting time in Nicaragua is getting closer and closer! For the past months we have visited many communities and projects and have met a lot of wonderful people that are making positive changes in Nicaragua. Together, we have built a beautiful program for you, full of engaging activities and surrounded by enchanting nature. Let´s also not forget the moving and inspiring encounters with the many Nica´s (as the people from Nicaragua refer to themselves) from all ages and backgrounds that are about to come across!

We hope that all of these new experiences that await for you just up ahead will not only teach you a lot about Nicaragua, but also about yourself. All in all, your time in Estelí will definitely challenge you to get out of your comfort zone once in a while, but you were chosen to be a Glimpser because you have what it takes to make the most out of this unique opportunity. We believe that you each have skills and personal characteristics to embrace a journey of a lifetime – we believe in you! We know how hard you’ve worked to get here, and we are going to put in all of our effort this summer to help ensure that this will be an adventure that you will fully enjoy and never forget. Friendships for life have formed on Global Glimpse trips and many lives transformed. Thousands of students before you have had the Global Glimpse experience that you are about to embark on, and they are now inspiring other people in- and outside of the Unites States. We can´t wait to be a part of your journey as well!

We wish you a good trip and we can’t wait to meet all of you at the airport!
