"The Free High School is a model for the nation.” Vice-Minister of Education, Marlon Siu.

“The Free High School is changing the culture of the region.” –former Vice-mayor of San Juan

I co-founded the Free High School in 2002, and, as a volunteer, I raise funds for it every year. I think it is the most important institution in San Juan del Sur for empowering women and men for life. Every year we change the lives of 650-700 students who could not continue their education otherwise.

The Free High School has been independently reviewed and found to be the best of its kind.
