Order fulfils, :-)

Delia and Manuel give us the possibility to do a beautiful challenge. Our GUSANITOS learn one more time , that it is a joy to divided with other people. Thank you Delia and Manuel that we can learn this lesson. Thanks to Jorge und Yamileth Gutiérrez for your time to drive us to the familys which need the most joy.

Thanks to Delia and Manuel

Delia and Manuel lives in the USA and this is the second time they surprised us with 2 suitcases, full with clothes, shoes and toys. The most things get a new owner directly and the other part we give to familys near the sea in Granada. The familys live in very poor homes. Our Madrina Mayra take a look which familys have the most necessity and next week we start our mission with our older GUSANITOS.

Thanks to Delia and Manuel and a lot of huges to you.


Happy birthday Leonardo, and…

Congratulation to  Natieska to your 3. birthday : -)
All people say, Christmas is in December, but we celebrate chistmas in this month ; -) Maybe you remember that a few month ago we have a visit from Rodolfo Saavedra- a Nicaraguan who lives in the USA since 26 years- Five Nicaraguans who lives in the USA(Sonia A. Bodán Bravo, Ruperto Ruiz, José Rodolfo Saavedra, Marko Serrano und María Eugenia Miranda) have founded an non-profit- organisation and it calls “Somos Una Mano Amiga” (SUMA) This organisation wants to help people in Nicaragua .
After the visit from Rodolfo Saavedra they directly start a donation campaign. The results are fantastic. Thank you one more time and a great applause to the management, the members and the assistants from “Somos Una Mano Amiga”. We send you a few impressions from our Christmas-Party.
Now we change the theme: Life is come and go. Some people are closed to our heart but the reality is difficult.  We say good buy to our Madrina Fátima. Fátima we wish you all the best and don’t forget you are welcome everytime in the GUSANITOS.
Now, one door closed and a new open. Welcome Mama Reyna. She is the first mother from our GUSANITOS who helps us with our project. We congratulate you to your step in the future. Never lose your positive life attitude, your humorous way of being and in the special one your hearty laugh.
Our friend Rodolfo Saavedra visit us second time. In the meantime Rodolfo is a member of our family. Our GUSANITOS say affectionate uncle Rodolfo. Rodolfo, thank you very much for the perfect lunch and thank you for the cheerfulness you bring in our house. You are welcome all the time, but next time you must bring your guitare. Take care Rodolfo, see you!
Now we want to inform you about our activities in the home for the elderly in Granada. In this month our girls AND boys help to make a surprise to the old people. They all paint pictures for the sleeping rooms. Our Madrina Mayra wants to go with our girls to the home for the eldery with a lot of pictures. But… “no chance” The nun don’t allow this. We don’t understand this?!?! because we want to make a pleasure to the older people!!! But thee reality can’t reduced our pleasure about the pics.
“step by step” we go forward everyday, and everyday “we pack the bull with the horns” ; -)
We send you a flying kiss and see you next time…

It was a cold and rainy day…


…it was June 14, 2012. At this day they came wet and chilled through at our door. Our first GUSANITOS came to us. A wonderful day, you feel the magic at this day. ….

Carolay, Alex, Tatjana, Javiera, Franklin, Stephany, Paola und Yaritza, our first GUSANITOS. They fulfilled our house with childlike feelings and after more are coming. In the meantime our have 35 GUSANITOS. With the storys from our children we can fill up a lot of books. It looks as if it had been yesterday, simultaneous as if years had passed.

Also there are a group of teen. They are one of the first, too. They help us to clean, to paint, to transport something , for all the thousand things we must do.

The same group of teens help us on year later, too. This time under the leadership from Ramón. They fill up our playground with new soil and planted eight wonderfull new trees for our GUSANITOS. A very special present. It symbolizes our philosophy for “being and working”

Thank you very much to Don Ramón from Ferretería Santa María, initiator and donator for the activities “ trees of the year!  And a big cuddle to all the teens , which give us this very special gold- present!

Yes, this year passed very fast.  It give us a lot of fun , greetings, experiences, goodbys, lessons and also a little bit of dolorousness. In this year we find our routine, which never be a routine.

We achievement some small objects. Now it is time to go forward. Outside from our door are thousand nicaraguan children without hope and without the magic sunray. All of these children need this magic to to find they own way.

We look back to the date 15.11.2012. On this day we inform you that Maria Gracia Mongelli makes beautiful towels with our logo. Our friends in Europe sold 25 towels and the total sum is USD 420.–. We say, thanks you, to Maria Gracia and to all the people to help buy and selling the towels. The earnings are from a wonderful handwork “made in Italy” and goes to a wonderful handwork “made in Nicaragua”.

Because of this reason we say WELCOME in our team to Jerling Rosales. The speciality from Jerling Rosales is to tie hammock with high quality. Jerling is the first person for our project “is is never too late”. We help people to found they own small company. And this get a hammock-shop.
To make the start easier for her, we order small hammocks. Our GUSANITOS designed it. Every child paint their own small hammock and Jerling tie this hammocks. In the end we will sale this. We take this money in our project.

Jerling knows our philosophy “TAKE AND GIVE” Because of this reason she must teach some parents from our GUSANITOS to tie hamocks. They are integrated into the buisness. We look confident into the future and we are sure that some parents can nourish soon her children. Maybe modest, but human and with dignity.

We keep one’s fingers crossed for Jerling. And we hope your dreams fulfil.

Soon, we show you the GUSANITOS- hammocks  and you can help to sale these. They will owe it you with THANK YOU AUNT, THANK YOU UNCLE, with a inimitable smile.

A big hug to all and see you soon…


Our GUSANITOS designed their own “swimming pool” ;-)


The story beginns harmless. Our GUSANITOS have played in their sandbox. Step by step there becoming small rivers. The river becomes a lake and the lake
became slowly a sea o
r better.. it is a ocean.
It is clear, that our GUSANITOS- they have dug a big hole- wants to fill water in the hole to have a swimming pool. An everglade pool should be healthy, but this we don’t want to give. But we are suree, that our GUSANITOS have fun with this pool. And ALL our GUSANITOS do this work together with a lot of energie, happiness, illusion and anthusiasm. In the end we have organized some professionally helpers that our GUSANITOS can finish with their work. It was a sensation, a real pr
easure to see that their dream came true.
An event, before a few month unthinka
ble 🙂

We celebrate christmas and give us two big tables and benches for our garden. The place for our GUSANITOS to eat, work, and play it got slowly too narrow. Addes to this, it is better to do homework outside in the nature. Thanks to Don Ramón from the Ferretería Santa María. He help us and give us material.

And now we have news from Tatjana. Her performances at school are very positive. She is so good in school that her director tells her that she goes to next higher class. Congratulation to you, Tatjana. We are sure now, that you must
not argue with your teacher, because you have bred
om, 😉

In the end we talk about Rudolfo Saavedra. He visit us and bring lunch for all our GUSANITOS. A lot of greetings and thanks to him from all our GUSANITOS. Rudolfo Saavedra was born in Nicaragua and live in the USA more than 20 years.
 A group from Granada who lives all in the USA (Rodolfo Saavedra, Maria Eugenia Miranda, Marko Serrano, Sonia A Bodan y Ruperto Ruiz) have founded an organizaion and it called UNA MANO AMIGA. With the device” we help Nicaragua” they support small projects in Nicaragua. We don’t know in which form or art they will help us, but they tell us that our GUSANITOS become help. We are very happy about this and like it, that some people have a better live but don’t forget the people in homeland.
Thanks to the organisation and the people from UNA MANO AMIGA.

At once thanks to our volunteer Mayra Bravo. She has established the contact to the organisation UNA MANO AMIGA.

We could tell you a lot of mor but you know, the day has only 24 hours.

Take care of you, we do the same. See you soon…
