ORLANDO, Fla. – This week, thirty Nautique employees traveled from Orlando, Florida to El Salvador and served as part of the Nautique Cares initiative.
During the trip the Nautique employees traveled to Ahuachapán, El Salvador, which is about two hours outside the country’s capital, San Salvador. The Nautique team built desks for a new CAD Design Center sponsored by Nautique, painted classroom desks and benches, provided and distributed clothing to needy children, provided and distributed food to hundreds of families, interacted with and encouraged students in a local school, and visited new mothers in a local maternity ward.
This is Nautique’s fourth trip to El Salvador as part of its Nautique Cares initiative. On previous trips the Nautique team has built classrooms, built a creative state-of-the-art reading center, and helped develop a state-of-the-art design center in partnership with Rhino Software that helps El Salvador students get computer certification.
“Over the last eight years I have been honored to join our Nautique team as it has traveled around the world helping others,” said Bill Yeargin, president and CEO of Nautique’s parent company, Correct Craft. “The Nautique employees are amazing and really have a heart to help those who need it. The Nautique team has grown to love the Hamilton family of Ahuachapán, El Salvador and enjoys supporting their amazing work. We look forward to going back!”
Nautique, a subsidiary of Correct Craft, continues to expand the Nautique Cares initiative that is having a significant impact around the world. The Nautique Cares initiative started eight years ago and includes serving both our local community and taking employees on service trips around the world. Over the last several years Nautique employees have traveled to El Salvador, India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico and the Apache reservation in Arizona.
