Our mission is to provide the resources identified by Granada educators to support their mission of providing a quality education to all children in the city of Granada, Nicaragua and surrounding rural communities.
- Fund structural and environmental projects to help provide a safe and healthy environment for learning (water supply and filtration, alternative to open flame cooking, healthy meals, fans and air conditioning, playground improvements, dental and medical clinics, clothing and shoes).
- Fund initiatives to advance learning and mastery of 21st century skills (library and computer lab, internet connect).
- Support teachers and students by improving the physical classroom (supply desks and whiteboards, school supplies such as paper, pencils, crayons, etc).
- Provide teaching and learning resources such as computers, tablets, and books in Spanish.
A SPECIAL THANKS TO: Jubilee House, Feed the Children & Fabretto (Nicaragua), TOMS Shoes (CA), Share Your Souls (Chicago), Fold A Goal, (Los Angeles) Peaceworks, NYU Dental Brigade, Pilates Haus, Bona FIde Dental, 77 Alexandria, Pilates Haus (NJ) and NYU Dental Brigade (NYC), & International Peaceworks Project for their generous support of 11 schools and 2,000 students.
The big project for this year is implementing a preventative care program in collaboration with the New York University Global Dental Outreach program, the premier dental brigade in the world. We will be working with directors of 4 public schools in Granada to develop a successful model that can be scaled to many other public schools throughout Nicaragua. In addition. The preventative program will be supplemented by a clinical care component. We are in the planning and approval process for a small permanent clinic in the front of Carlos Bravo - to provide ongoing clinical care to public school students. WE NEED YOUR DONATIONS TO SUPPORT THESE EFFORTS!
