NEWTON SAN JUAN DEL SUR SISTER CITY PROJECT INC Overview
Our mission is to empower the 18,000 far-flung people of San Juan to develop their education and skills and improve their health. Current programs include maintaining school buildings, providing biosand filters and eco-stoves in the rural areas, and overseeing the free High School for Adults/ Technical Institute.
By the end of this year the Free High School will have graduated 616 people. It enrolls about 700 every year, the most-underprivileged in the region.
Over 700 biosand filters have been given out.
We built or renovated 17 schools, including new pre-schools in rural villages.
