Only 3 of the 32 students in the village of San Antonio, Nicaragua, attend school. They used to go to a school 1.5 miles away but a new high-speed road was installed, making it too dangerous for the children to traverse. Villagers tried to build a makeshift classroom, but it failed.

TGUP and its Nicaraguan partner, Seeds of Learning, are helping the village build a proper classroom. It is funded by students from Twin Peaks Middle School, Gahr High School, Los Altos High School, Freestyle Academy, and the generosity of JP Mariscal, all from California, USA. The community itself is contributing 20% of the cost through in-kind labor.

Thank you to those who made this possible:  students at Gahr High School, Los Altos High School, Twin Peaks Middle School, Mr. J.P. Mariscal, and Ms. R. Dunkle. Children in Nicaragua will have a better chance in life because of you.
