"Promoting cultural exchange and improving lives through service trips and sustainable community development"
Ash Eames PRESENTE!!
Our beloved friend, Ash Eames, founder of Compas de Nicaragua, passed away last Thursday evening at home. Ash founded Compas de Nicaragua in 1992 and began bringing yearly service trips groups to the La Primavera neighborhood. Over the years, a community center was constructed and a community, tree nursery was initiated. Ash also directed a video about Nicaragua called, Deadly Embrace.
It was Ash's dedication and passion for his work in Nicaragua that moved me to travel here for the first time in 1996. He was an inspiration to me and to so many others. He was dedicated not only to his Nicaragua and Central America work, but for so many other just causes. We hope to continue to work together in support of our Nicaraguan friends and to continue the legacy that Ash has left us.
There will be a gathering to celebrate Ash's life on Sunday, July 20th at 2:00 p.m. at the Starr King Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on Fairgrounds Road in Plymouth, NH.
