Did you say “walls in Chiriza?” - Nicaragua

Yes! We said walls in Chiriza! Construction has started in our community of Chiriza and the first phase has been completed. Because of the donations that have been made over the last few months by former volunteers and their families and friends, we have been able to start putting up the foundational brick walls in our school! We have been working in an open school with only a roof for eight months and the transformation we will see with a completed and closed school will be amazing.

Construction will continue into April and May and will include Phase II: Upper walls, Phase III: outdoor classrooms and Phase IV: completing the interior of the school! Thanks to all those who have contributed to this goal and please continue to support us or encourage others to do so as well!
