"Neighbors to Nicaragua" joins with "Education Plus Nicaragua"
When Neighbors to Nicaragua saw the great work of Education Plus Nicaragua, we wanted to help move this venture into its own building by helping to purchase a site and helping with the construction of a building. A year ago, that was a dream. By June 2014, that dream came true...thanks to you and many other donors.
February 2014: Through the kind generosity of Linda Bradford of New York, Education Plus Nicarauga received a donation of the land and this partially-constructed building to use as a starting point for a new school. Neighbors to Nicaragua became a major donor for turning the structure into the new school in Pantanal, one of the poorest neighborhoods in the world.
March 2014: The "muro" (the red, protective security wall in the background) was constructed, walls on the building were reinforced, and a roof was attached. Donors and volunteers put in a play area for the students as well.
April 24, 2014....progress continues.
June 2014: Open for Business!
