About every quarter the Nica PDs and our Country Director go on a retreat to one of the many beautiful locations in Nicaragua. This past weekend we went to a beautiful house on a cliff overlooking Playa Maderas and Playa Marsella. The retreats are the perfect time to do team building, organizing, and goal setting. We are lucky to have Katie as our Country Director because she is really knowledgeable about how to identify the needs of your community, how to structure your programs around those needs and measure how well we're doing it. Each retreat helps us learn how to do those things better so we can implement it in our daily programs. Plus, we always make time to hang out, go to the beach, and eat tons of food.
