Learning center in pantanal we built the building which has a library, computer classroom with 25 computers, a large community room and an office in pantanal, nicaragua. The building is built on land owned by the local government and leased to us free on a 10 year renewable lease. We conduct many of our classes from this facility and other, unrelated governmental and non-governmental organizations utilize the facility for their instructional programs as well. We have a paid learning center director, librarian, janitor, and security at the facility. We also pay for utilities, internet services, and repairs.

These are continuing scholarships covering each students ongoing university costs provided certain minimum academic standards are met by each student. In addition, gocare provided scholarships covering only transportation and supplies to 20 students who passed the entrance exams to the national univeristy (unan). [this entitles them to free tuition]

We maintain and operate the pre-school out of a leased facility. The nicaraguan ministry of education conducts oversight and provides programmatic guidance and teacher training.
