Mother´s day 2015

May 30th is the day designated as Mother’s Day in Nicaragua. They make certain that their mothers get the recognition that they deserve and schools are given the day off to prepare big celebrations to give moms lots of love.

Our project celebrated the day with the mothers and the kids, which involved traditional dance routines, a piñata, and games. They did everything to organize the best celebration ever.
