Adios Profe Aaron - Nicaragua

To say last week was an emotional one, would be an understatement, as it was time for Aaron, Nicaragua Country Director, to finally say goodbye to the project. Aaron has been working tirelessly for the last 2 years in Esteli and with his fellow staff and the all the hardworking volunteers, has been making huge advancements on the project.

He was here to get Chiriza off the ground, the school starting with just tables, whiteboards and a roof, untill today where there are 4 classrooms a kitchen and bathrooms. La Thomspon has also made huge strides, with the Incentives Scheme, Plan identidad, Secondary School Scholarships and so much more in both school. Aaron will be sadly missed by the children, staff, volunteers and the local community, but we know he will be back before too long. Cuidate Profe Aaron!
