Graduation in La Thompson - Nicaragua

We recently celebrated la Promoción or graduation of ten preschoolers from La Thompson. Vetsayda, Martita, Vanessa, Chirley, Lener, Miguel, Arlin, Karol, Jefer and Edixon were all accompanied by a parent, relative or friend to receive their diplomas.

GVI Phoenix local staff Karla and Yessenia decorated the school full tilt for this special celebration dedicated to past GVI project manager Steve Elliott who saw these students first enter school and worked with them extensively.

These ten children are all fully prepared to enter the first grade and much of this can be attributed to their parents sending them to school to receive help from very dedicated and dynamic GVI volunteers. The older students helped to decorate and prepare for the graduation and some put on traditional and modern dance routines.
Good luck on the next phase of your educational journey.


How does GVI Phoenix make a difference?
