Review for Newton San Juan Del Sur Sister City Project Inc, Newton, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a volunteer at the school and am staying for 10 months here in San Juan Del Sur. This organization is doing great work! The motivation of the people working here is amazing. But I believe it's not just the teachers and volunteers that make this project so successful. The real power comes from the people that take the classes. They really WANT to attend the classes and study and improve their standard of living. I've witnessed several times that a student goes up to the teacher and asks for extra classes. Many times this can't be done because the students don't have any extra free time in their schedule or live too far from town. To attend the Saturday school, some students get up at 4 am to take the bus!

They have my utmost respect and I'm proud to be helping here!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

volunteering at the school in San Juan Del Sur.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have the local people of the organization make time in their (very busy) schedule to take english classes. This could help improve personal relations and publicity.

Role:  Volunteer & I teach English and Microemprezas and help with administration.
