N_A.01 Support an education center for social disadvantaged children (Nicaragua)

Project Number: N_A.01

Location: Camoapa, Nicaragua

 

Description of the Project:

The project’s objective is to satisfy the elementary needs of underprivileged children by means of education and commitment in order to give them the opportunity to be a responsible adult and to break the cycle of poverty.

The Non-Profit-Organisation provides a semi-residential program that includes three meals a day, tutoring, mentoring, supervised recreation, health care, health education, creative activities and psychological services for all the children that come to this Hogar. The mothers have also the possibility to join some activities like reading as well as writing classes and can take advantage of the psychological care.
