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.

Target demographics:

Under-served low-income women and men who have been excluded from regular high schools

Direct beneficiaries per year:

In 2013, 681 people enrolled in our three high-school programs

Geographic areas served:

The 250-square mile area of San Juan del Sur Nicaragua
