Why and how did you get involved with Casa – Pueblito?  

Ashley Rerrie , our Country Director in Nicaragua, is a former colleague of mine. Ashley introduced me to Casa – Pueblito in 2016. At the time, I was completing an MA in Development Studies with a focus on communication and higher education for development in Latin America. I was intrigued and inspired by CP’s solidarity based approach to international cooperation and education in Nicaragua and beyond. I was captivated and inspired to become a part of this dynamic community.

What is the best thing about being a part of the Casa – Pueblito community?

Having the opportunity to be a part of something so unique. My engagement with CP is a continuous process of reflection and learning about solidarity, international cooperation, intersectionality, privilege, and social justice.

If there’s one thing people should know about Casa – Pueblito, what would it be?

CP may be a small organization, but our focus on solidarity and community engagement means that our projects are high impact and locally relevant. I have the utmost respect for Ashley. I am confident in her capabilities and judgement, and am extremely proud to support her team’s important work.
