Amidst the chaos and hardship endured in Nicaragua in recent years, the Samuel Calero Child Development Centre in San Marcos, Nicaragua has remained an oasis of stability, love and hope for children. In 1986, it was “twinned” with the Glebe Parents' Day Care in Ottawa, Canada. Parents and staff at the Glebe have helped by sending equipment, supplies and small amounts of cash, but still today, have never met their friends in Nicaragua. This program is a video dialogue in which the Nicaraguans tell their Canadian “companeros” about the difficulties, sorrows and achievements they have experienced in their struggle to care for and educate their children, thereby illustrating to the viewer the tender similarities and tragic differences between the two communities.
