Nautique employees helped residents of Ahuachapán, El Salvador, this week as part of the company’s Nautique Cares initiatives.

This week 30 Nautique employees traveled from Orlando, Fla., to El Salvador and served as part of the Nautique Cares initiatives.

The employees traveled to Ahuachapán, 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 initiatives.

On previous trips the employees have built classrooms, built a creative reading center and helped develop a 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,” Nautique parent company Correct Craft president and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. “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 initiatives, which the company said are having a significant impact around the world.

The initiatives started eight years ago and include serving the local community and taking employees on service trips around the world. During the past several years Nautique employees have traveled to El Salvador, India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico and the Apache reservation in Arizona.
