Ms Earth Americas Teaches Sustainable Living to Students in Nicaragua
I spent the week with the Miss Earth United States national & state representatives at my second home, World Missions Outreach.
I spent the week with 9 kind-hearted & philanthropy driven woman while serving as global ambassadors throughout Nicaragua.
One of our main objectives at World Missions outreach is teach self-sustainable education. The Miss Earth US Organization & the Ms Earth Organizations whole purpose is driven by the same passion for helping the earth & it's inhabitants.
We took time to teach & equip each student with the knowledge and tools to create a self-sustainable lifestyle while using recycled materials!
Each WMO student learned how to properly plant & take care of their own vegetables & fruits using recycled plastic bottles!
This basic understanding of agriculture & type of trade-skill education ensures that no child should ever have to go to bed hungry!

How do you create a vertical garden out of recycled materials?
1. Each student used a recycled plastic bottle & cut a square hole out of the plastic to use as their planting container.
2. We then showed each student how to add the appropriate amount of soil for their plant to grow in & explained the importance of knowing what type of soil each seed needed.
3. Next, we show WMO students how deep to place their seeds & the appropriate amount of space to leave between each seed.
4. Time for water! We explained to our WMO students the importance of keeping their plants watered & showed them the appropriate amount of water to add.
Why is Ms Earth & Miss Earth US Relevant to WMO?
Miss Earth & Ms Earth Organizations are setting a legacy of beauty & responsibility to our earth & it's inhabitants. The Miss Earth US & Ms Earth Organizations have partnered with WMO as their National Charity to preserve our earth throughout the United States & all across the world.
Why is teaching sustainability & agriculture important?
WMO students learned how to plant their own vegetables & fruits! Ensuring, no child has to go to bed hungry & allowing them to always be able to provide food for themselves.

What did we plant?
Tomatoes, Peas, Onions, Carrots & Beans!
What will the students do with their plants?
Each student will be responsibly for taking the knowledge & tools that the Miss Earth US Team equipped them with to tend and take care of their plant. They will come to school and monitor it daily. Once their plant starts to produce, the students can take the produce home to their families!
Agriculture Education at WMO in Nicaragua?
WMO provides all of our students, 1st - 11th grade, with trade skill & agriculture classes. We ensure our students have the tools they need to create a better and more self-sustainable tomorrow for the now generation and future generations go come!
Do Short Term Mission Teams Matter?
Of course they do! Still questioning it? Ask the 100 students who now have agriculture knowledge & are able to provide food for their families; not just one time, but for a lifetime!
