Raleigh Costa Rica & Nicaragua's Expedition 13A honouring 20.02.13: UN Day of Social Justice [02:18]
Raleigh Costa Rica & Nicaragua's Expedition 13A: 'Social Justice means complete and genuine equality of all people.' Paul George, Executive Director Peninsula Peace and Justice Centre. The 20th February is UN Day of Social Justice. Social Justice is a broad and complex issue but as Ban Ki Moon, Secretary General of the United Nations expressed: 'Social Justice is an underlying principle for peaceful and prosperous coexistence within and among nations. We uphold the principles of social justice when we promote gender equality or the rights of indigenous peoples and migrants. We advance social justice when we remove barriers that people face because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability.' We challenged Raleigh International's Venturers and Volunteer Managers on Expedition 13A to really think about the issues facing us globally and how the work they are undertaking on their projects across Community, Environmental and Adventure phases are helping to positively impact the world we live in. We asked them to consider how the communities are working towards greater social justice? How has inequality of work rights, in-access to basic public services, issues of race, gender, religion or culture faced them or those they know? How can we all make a difference?

Lake Nicaragua - Supporting the rural community in Granada, Nicaragua. Part 2 [03:03] Jicaro Island Ecolodge, a luxury property located on the idyllic Isletas de Granada in Lake Nicaragua provides travelers with a unique five star vacation experience. It also provides support for the primarily rural community it resides in. The property itself sits on a one-acre island among a chain of 365 miniature islands in the area, some of which house other luxury properties but most of which are occupied by farmers and fisherman. Despite this dichotomy, businesses such as Jicaro have made it their mission to integrate themselves into the local community. "We want the people of the island community to be proud to have us here, to work here, to see Jicaro as a benefit," says general manager Howard Coulson. Saul Victorino, a local fisherman who lives on an island about 20 minutes away from Jicaro was recently hired to work maintenance and also sells his fish to the hotel. He is grateful for the job, and the opportunity to provide a better life for his wife and two daughters. He is also grateful that the hotel has implemented a culture of sustainability and education around the islands. He says he's learned a lot in terms of recycling and how to dispose of trash correctly and his neighbors have caught wind as well. Saul has been encouraged by the hotel to offer artisan fishing tours where he teaches guests the art of the Nicaraguan catch. Coulson says the hotel is proud to promote this type of real cultural exchange. Although it would be easier to hire ...
