NEW Phodographer Tom Neuhauser in Ticuantepe and Leon, Nicaragua, Summer 2011


Tom Neuhauser attended the Learning Center Trek with Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners last summer. Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners of the Americas, Inc. is a not-for-profit, non-political organization working to enhance the quality of life in both Wisconsin and Nicaragua through people-to-people programs promoting cultural awareness and sustainable community development.

Tom visited Wisconsin’s Partner Country (Nicaragua) with team that taught workshops at the Learning Centers, or in Tom’s case – took and printed photos for Dog Meets World, which was very, very well received. What a great collaborations for people-to-people interactions.

Tom recounts: The children were very excited to have a picture of themselves to bring home and share with friends and family. They waited patiently in a long line to have their picture taken and were mesmerized watching the photo actually print on the portable printer. I enjoyed taking part in this project, it was a wonderful experience.
