Addressing the realities of living in a developing country as poor as Nicaragua requires some consideration to long-term security. This is necessary for the benefit of the program, the staff and volunteers who work with EI. There are many things currently under consideration as we further establish the EI’s foundation for the next level of growth ~ a permanent, more central location in Granada, 24-hour security, shared with other organizations, etc.

This puppy is EI’s newest volunteer and another long-term security measure ~ although it may take another 6 months until she can grow into her new role.

Her name is “Cana” short for the national drink Flor de cana, a local Nicaraguan brand of rum.

Security is likely to be an on-going discussion surrounding EI’s program, both in our current barrios and areas we expand to. To read more of Kathy’s thoughts on this issue, read “Can we build a bridge?”
