Education is one of the three core pillars to our mission, and we are committed to providing opportunities to the children, young adults and adults in the communities we serve. One apparent fact is that fluency in English helps Nicaraguans obtain fair employment. However, English is NOT taught in the elementary and high school system in Nicaragua.
In April 2018, we launched a pilot English as a Second Language (“ESL”) class with young children in Sintiope, Ometepe Island. Since then, the project has grown into a permanent staple of three (3) sessions in the two villages of Sintiope and Santa Cruz. In addition to English, our students are taught the unconditional love of Jesus aiming at shaping better citizens to break the cycle of poverty.
How can you help? There are many ways you can participate in sustaining this project, such as:
- Check out our AmazonSmile charity wish list to purchase bilingual books or devotionals.
- Visit Ometepe Island! You don’t have to be a teacher/fluent in Spanish. Our students crave to hear native English spoken within their lessons. Contact us for more info.
- Donate to support the ongoing salary and supplies.
