KIWANIS CalNevHa DIVISION 44 (plus Palo Alto and Los Altos clubs) are building a classroom in La Quebradita, Nicaragua. This is the pilot project for TGUP’s “6C Initiative,” where Clusters of Clubs Collaborate to Create Catalytic Change. Thank you, Division 44, all of your clubs, and all of your members for your generosity and vision. The world is a better place because of you. 

Classroom before
Ground breaking day!

The ground breaking ceremony was held on February 25, 2021. The entire community gathered to celebrate and help. Watch the videos below.

Foundation is in

The entire village, including women and children, turned out to help dig and pour the foundation. Watch the two videos, upper right and lower left. 

Frame goes up

With the foundation in, the frame goes up quickly. The internal steel design is efficient of both materials and assembly time.

Finishing the structure

With the frame up, the wall panels bolt on quickly, both inside and out.  We’re very close to finishing. Ground breaking was on Feb. 25 (see above), remember? 

Finishing touches

We’re down to the finishing touches. The bridge, floor, and walls are all being finalized before painting.


The paint is on, both inside and out. The latrines are in and already being used. We’ll do the playground, and in about two more weeks will be done
