Wisconsin Swings for Nicaragua!
This annual event takes place at Winagamie Golf Course , southwest of Appleton, last Wednesday of every July

There is still time to sign up and even if you aren't a golfer, the raffle, silent auction and "lunch only option" is a fun time and great way to support the projects of Wis/Nic Partners.   E mail wnp@uwsp.edu if you want to join the carpool and "socially support" this fun event (non-golfers leaving Stevens Point late morning ) 
For information contact Judy Miller at jmi54911@aol.com  Judy
Hope to see Wednesday, July 27th !!
The W/NP warehouses in both Wisconsin and Nicaragua are fun yet productive places for W/NP volunteers to gather, pack (and unpack) material donations, share updates, and learn more about ways we can work together!

Please click here for a revised schedule of Wisconsin warehouse receiving and packing days, see p.2 for information about type of items needed/accepted.

Learning Center Program 

The objective of the Learning Center Program (LCP) within Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners is to provide and promote opportunities to develop skills that will improve vocational options, income, self-sufficiency and empowerment. 

The leaders and participants meet monthly at the W/NP office in Managua, the last Saturday of each month. E ach gathering brings variety and inspiration as new knowledge is shared with one another.  

Previous months are available on the  W/NP Website LC Page


Meeting comments, " ..I admire her (Ulda) because despite her illness, she comes to teach and encourage us. Sometimes we are well, but refuse to teach others.  I thank you for that encouragement. "   See P. 6 of the June report for more comments.  It's true, we all need encouragement and reminders to carry on and share what we have with others, especially when capable of doing so.   Thanks Ulda!
Special thanks to those who have written a review about W/NP,  word of mouth is clearly the most effective method.  Sharing this newsletter with a friend, family or co-worker can really help others learn what W/NP is all about. Click here to read or write a review for W/NP 
Thanks much for your interest and support !
