Two Year Anniversary Celebration in La Thompson - Nicaragua

This weekend we celebrated the two year anniversary of the GVI Phoenix school, Escuela Guardabarranco in La Thompson, Nicaragua! The party was replete with pin the tail on the donkey while dancing, other games, raffle prizes, singing, food and speeches by local GVI Phoenix staff Karla and Yessenia.

Even better, the parents, grandparents and GVI volunteers and staff got into the act and played the games and danced as well! The celebration was a tribute to the community’s support, former volunteers and staff and current GVI Phoenix staff as well as the students that attend our schools each day. In total, nearly 160 people came to celebrate!!


How does GVI Phoenix make a difference?
