About Us

The Pulsera Project is a non-profit organization that empowers Nicaraguan artisans, youths, students, and communities through the

sale of their colorful handwoven bracelets, or "pulseras" in Spanish.


Pulsera sales brighten U.S. schools with art, language, and cultural education while engaging students in international service that is effective, enriching, and fun.


Please explore our site to discover why, in three years, student leaders and teachers have spread the Pulsera Project from a single Pennsylvania classroom to schools across 49 states, coloring their hallways, classrooms and campuses with beautiful Nicaraguan art. We hope you'll join us in coloring the world!

Getting involved with the Pulsera Project and bringing a pulsera sale to life in your school could not be easier or more fun!


Join us – and students in more than 800 Schools in coloring the world with beauty and awareness through the Pulsera Project! The project is amazingly popular because it combines international service, cultural awareness, fair-trade, and truly beautiful art – all in a cause that benefits young artists and their Nicaraguan communities.


It's absolutely free to receive a box in the mail, filled with beautiful, hand-woven bracelets - along with picture displays and short films that explain how the Pulsera Project began as a family vacation three years ago, and quickly blossomed into a volunteer-led, grassroots movement

for change in schools across 49 states.


We work together with young pulsera makers – many former street kids who are now independent young adults – to change hearts, minds, and countless lives – both in the US and Nicaragua. Pulsera sales provide opportunity, education, and !


What makes the Pulsera Project so unusual is that it is an effective service project masquerading as an explosion of color and art – one that can easily go viral and color every hallway, classroom, and corner of a school! It's easy to feel a connection to the young artists too, since their pictures and signatures come tagged on each of their pulseras.

Project leaders from many schools have traveled with us to Nicaragua to see Pulsera Project programs first-hand – on two annual trips – one in December and one in July. The trips are life changing experiences for many who go!


If you are a student or teacher who is ready to engage your passion for service in a colorful and worthwhile cause, we invite you to look over our website, check out the Pulsera Project Sales Guide (currently not availble on the mobile pulsera website), then send us an e-mail when you are not only ready, but truly excited, to join us in coloring the world!!
