This project is for comprehensive community and housing research and design in the La Prusia neighborhood of Granada, Nicaragua. La Prusia is located along the road that connects the city of Granada and Lake Apoyo, both among the top tourist attractions in the Central American nation of Nicaragua. This neighborhood, however, does not share the benefits of the tourist industry and has fallen into levels of extreme poverty. For many years Casas de la Esperanza, our non-profit partner, has been working with the inhabitants of La Prusia to build homes, teach children, and provide communal technical training.
